“You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
~ Ansel Adams
Sometimes photography isn’t about the technical aspects of capturing a great image, but about a whole range of emotions that are poured into a photograph from the scene in front of the lens.
I was reminded of that connection between seeing and feeling…that connection that Ansel said was a component of every great image, when I attended a health recovery workshop at the International Taoist Tai Chi Center in Orangeville, Ontario last weekend.
The center is a place where the world is quiet and still. Where I can disconnect from the busy pace of my life and just STOP.
I’m still in that stopping mode.
So here are a few images that speak to me of times when I was able to turn off my brain and just LOOK.
Hope you enjoy them.
