since my dear camera has been in the shop (RIP), I brought the Nikon d200 on my adventures this weekend. The first camera I ever learned to shoot on. It’s a sturdy little 2005 DSLR with 10.2 megapixels & a whole lotta memories tied to it.
Borrowed and bent, left lifeless in stories told to our grandchildren of her former grandiose, she waits for our reform. Ostensibly exhausted, depleted, defective and void of earnest attention, her tarnished skin wrinkles with time, through our trashy past, on out into our grey and gristly future. But Colossal ferociousness is reserved for those who took without warrant. The viciousness of the reeling life cycle. The quick sting and the way of the world. Cataclysmic change. Geothermal cleansing. The patient but persistent will of Gaia.
Halfway through the week friends, which means you've already been bombarded with plenty of stress to break you down. What are you doing to bring restoration to your soul? Don't wait for the weekend. Find a midweek mini adventure. It can be as simple as an evening stroll. The walking path at Rampart Park in the Briargate area is a great place to find some restoration. PC: @chrisbensberg
Starting the journey home to Vail from Sweden tonight. Here’s a throwback to last summer with @davidneffphoto @theroadnefftraveled somewhere near Red Cliff. Sad to leave this beautiful country, but looking forward to seeing what we create when I get back to Colorado.
We know little, but that we must trust in what is difficult is a certainty that will never abandon us; it is good to be solitary, for solitude is difficult; that something is difficult must be one more reason for us to do it
