Back in the beginning of the Spring, I set out with my camera just for the fun of it. There were clouds in the sky, a reason to celebrate around here. I had worked all day in the office, as I usually do, and heading out for the sunset felt liberating.
The two old oak trees I’ve known for the last 15 years were still naked of leaves, and the mustard flowers, yellow and white, were out. The air was cold and fresh. Everything seemed to fall perfectly into place, and I had several minutes of joy photographing the renewed landscape. No tripod, no obsession with settings or composition, no preoccupation with projects, series, or technical excellence. Just being there with the camera.
I’m posting here two photos from that day, one in black and white (featured photo), and one in color. Most of us embrace photography for the sake of moments when we can get “lost in the present” with the camera. And the fact that we often tend to forget to let go, only makes those rare moments of awareness more precious, when they happen.
