Awe is required for creation.
since i hate driving i completely agree...i love the last picture...
every day i wonder what i'm not seeing, what i didn't see but should have seen, where i'm not looking. then i close my eyes, open them, and just try to observe. it hurts.
The passenger has an extra advantage, to see, to react, to notice what can't be noticed by the driver. I love these pictures, these takes on what the eye catches, how the light changes our intake, how we could blink and miss everything.It becomes a meditative time.
Being in the back of the car, in this case, was it a luck. I love these images, they are like a forest dream.
"momma!,,,they're on my side..."maybe it was just us. (me and my sister, "Momma Lou". :) how are you Tiny Leaf?
Love these, Erin! The absence of colour is mystifying.
Well...Once upon a time a wandering spirit. They called it "The light of Rivera Oveja" or "The man from Rivera Oveja". Since childhood I wanted to know where he was, where he was seen by the people. Now, looking at your photos, I think it was in a similar atmosphere when it could be seen by the frightened hikers. Perhaps someday I also see him.HugsW.
