Lost and Found

    Newer Older

    I close my eyes
    For clarity
    The real world lacks

    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.

      You've achieved a great effect here, Jeff, and I like the poetry idea; it's often occured to me as well.
