Scene 10/08


I had a friend tell me that the feather graffiti post made them sad. Perhaps this photo of the view that’s above the graffiti will give context for why I found it beautiful. A life lost is always that… A loss. And while I mourn they left us, I can also appreciate that an accident while enjoying a summer day at this place of extreme beauty is an incident related to living life with fervor. I think the feathers fit the fleeting wonder of a life lived to its fullness and a spirit set free to soar on the winds. For some reason it makes me feel that this life is not gone but simply transformed.

  2. A beautiful view. I also like the reasoned statement you have given why you photographed the feather graffiti and why you found it lovely. So well written.

    • Thanks, Clare. I got a little deep there, and I almost deleted my explanation. Then I remembered I am a writer, and it’s important to say things that are rich in meaning and to share opinions and feelings. Photos are good and can be moving, but sharing through writing with each other is where the real communication can begin. Thank you for expressing your appreciation and letting me know my ramblings were understandable. I worried it was rather obtuse.
