dunes and surf

Bandon-near the lighthouse at the Coquille River jetty…

Ordinarily, I go to the woods alone, with not a single
friend, for they are all smilers and talkers and therefore 
unsuitable.

I don’t really want to be witnessed talking to the catbirds 
or hugging the old black oak tree. I have my way of 
praying, as you no doubt have yours. 

Besides, when I am alone I can become invisible. I can sit
on the top of a dune as motionless as an uprise of weeds, 
until the foxes run by unconcerned. I can hear the almost
unhearable sound of the roses singing.

If you have ever gone to the woods with me, I must love
you very much.

    • Thanks so much for the encouragement, Phil…. two things, new, fixed length prime lens and a bit of boredom at the same sort of shots I’ve been doing for quite some time now. Shaking it up is a good thing every now and then. 😉
