I once stated that I am forever a beach bum, as the leafs are sweeping on the streets, I have decided to change my persona into a flower child for a day. Let me know tell you, it’s comforting to know that we can change into a different persona if we wish. I’ve never played around with a reflector for pictures, thus this photoshoot taught me a lot about lighting.
As a child the house I grew up in was surrounded by the forest. My cousins & I used to spend hours in the forest, building forts, ladder, and making trails. This quickly became a place for me to ground myself. The forest I grew up surrounded by always had a distinct smell that make me feel like home every time I am in it. I love the sound that the trees make when they dance together, swaying from side to side, or the crackling of the branches that have been around for years. To think that we take our land for granted, to think that we believe that there are tons of trees so it’s okay “we can just plant more”. Do you know how many years it took for that forest to grow?
A long trail walk in the forest will always ground the soul.
