I’d love to have the power of flight. There, I said it, I meant it, I shared it! I don’t believe I’m alone in this fantasy. Many of you may also have at some point wished for the same gift. Don’t get me wrong, I realize there are all sorts of biological, structural, physical, mental, evolutionary changes that I’d need to confront and perhaps change to do what I’m doing in this photo. Oddly, if I REALLY give thought to all the changes I’d need to pass through to obtain the gift of true flight, I may just change my mind; seek out something requiring a little less drama.
Luckily, I love photography. I also love the dawn, the sea/ocean, and most things belonging to the great outdoors. These days it’s not so challenging to put a few of these elements together in order to create a graphic like the one up above showing me calmly floating out over the bay with my bird companion. Direct photography, the ‘point, click, you’re done’ variety will never go out of style for me, but I’m happy to say the imaginative kid in me, the one who could spend hours in some sort of make-believe world, is alive and well. I’m learning to nurture that kid; give him more and more say in the direction of my creativity. He’s more than a little responsible for this one.
I’m glad he showed up with the suggestion.
