Last week I participated in a Miksang Photography workshop in Asheville, NC. In a nutshell, Miksang teaches photographers to discover fresh images by being contemplative and waiting for what they call a flash of perception before snapping the shutter.
One little leaf
It rained, heavily, for most of the time I was there. But the rain also helped to create great colors and interesting textures to discover with our cameras. At the end of a three-hour shoot I was walking (in the rain!) back to my B&B and was stopped cold by this leaf on the sidewalk.For some reason the phrase leaf of time popped into my head. Here it was, battered by wind and rain, its days surely numbered and yet it was giving off beauty, form and grace for those who were lucky enough to see.
A sampling of other images I took that focused on color and texture are on my photo site HERE. I hope you’ll stop by and visit. I think that your eyes and your heart would be pleased if you did. Thanks.
