Lost and Found

I close my eyes

For clarity

The real world lacks

Sincerity

 

For a moment

I am alone

To seek the truth

Success unknown

 

In foggy times

With thoughts unclear

Look for purchase

Not far but near

 

For sticking close

To what you know

Will keep you up

And not below

 

When you shoot alone, straining to capture a "vision", the quiet, peaceful environment can take your mind places you wouldn't normally go. I think sometimes a poem helps to fully express the photographer's intent. Sometimes poetry starts to come to me before I've even left the spot and packed up my gear. I find it an interesting mental exercise to revisit the photographic moments after you get home and try and capture the emotion of the scene into words.
