I read that article on GoPro too. Thank you for writing this, it reminds me to let go of my camera and slow down and absorb it all. Last week at Georgia O'Keefe's home and studio in Abiqui I was so disappointed to learn we couldn't take our cameras...but while there I felt such an intense connection to her, to her home and land. Would I have felt it if I had a camera in front of my face? Having said that, I still love your photo of the botanic gardens.

I get what you're saying here, but for me having my camera along on my hikes, biking travels and kayak adventures IS therapy. It's those reflection moments when I slow down, that's where I see something special. And that moment can change in an instant. I'm sure you've heard of those "photo a day" journals. I'm shocked with these kinds of journals, because the world around us is so vast. That would be like asking a writer to tell a story in one sentence. You kind of miss out on the beginning, middle and/or end. The same can be said for people that talk too much. They need to slow down. I'm talking too much here too. This was a good journal post, thanks Kathy.

I hear what you're saying, Brent. For someone like you--a really good photographer--your work is your creativity. You're showing us something that most of us don't see, and to me that's art. I think most people don't stop to see what you do.

I think this is so true and I loved this post. It really is what we do these days. I still buy film and get my slides developed and since I'm usually traveling with a photographer like Brent I see that so much is seen threw the lens for him but for me, especially since I am not digital and can delete my pics and take ten million of them, I am just standing there waiting and being and looking and smelling and listening and sometimes I'm not sure if I should even lug all that equipment around anymore. I feels good to be free to just experience it all! That was very insightful of you Kathy. Thanks!
