"Now, think of the happiest things.
It’s the same
as having wings!"
~ Peter Pan, Walt Disney
"Second start to the right and on till morning..."
I "pan," therefore, I am.
Seriously. For a primarily landscape photographer, I'm a sucker for nature's abstracts.
Embarrassingly so, if I were of the mind to apologize.
You know me well enough, to know I'm not.
Nature is where I breath and dream.
I feel closest here to the creation state we travel our lives to reclaim.
There is more, better, beyond us.
Connect without intent, and we can feel with our eyes, see with my heart, fly like a soul set free from expectation.
There's magic, everywhere we look.
So, yeah, I'm sharing ocean panning again.
I shot so much more. There are days of images to review and process and relive. And I'm still refining this technique.
But creative moments like this, learning to capture them, are the Outer Banks at its best for me.
All that's worthy still of the child within, longing to never grow up and leave this nirvana, thrives in each image.
If you need me, look for my shadow here...
