On a beautiful day, as I scout the land… I keep one eye open, my lens in my hand. I look down, I look up, and then what do I see? A beautiful creature… who is prospecting ME!
This morning I drove into Pasadena. It wasn’t a major excursion, but it was in the opposite direction of where I normally travel and everything was unfamiliar. I wish I had taken my camera. It’s the perfect place for street photography, but it was just TOO hot! I wanted to get in—and get out.
I went there to pick up the kit for my drawing class. I’m already enjoying the course. It’s not so much that I’ve learned anything yet (it’s only been two days), or that I even see the possibility of getting really good at it. It’s the fact that I’m putting aside my fear, putting the pencil to the pad, and making an effort.
Clouds on clouds, in volumes driven,
Curtain round the vault of heaven.
