Living on The Edge

Posted by

Beetle on Crystal Meadow. not a perfect image of the beetle i know, but it says what i feel at times perfectly. that we choose the paths we take, that the view on the edge, away from the safety of the center, is much better, that sometimes i am close to falling right off the known world. that sometimes the edge path has more to hold on to and you can close your eyes........the view isnt always important........maybe feeling the breeze is enough. i am so very small in the scheme of things.........and the green is lovely.

this will give a wider perspective on my mainly analogue and sometimes digital love affair with all things photography. I am often months behind what I am really doing on Aminus3 and I must confess to falling off the daily wagon for some time in 2017. You may find some articles I have written on Ipernity (and they are old too)but you may find interesting. I am enjoying trying to get back into Animus3 this year after that getting off the daily image treadmill time, which one can end up with one posting meaningless images just because you are addicted and want to be in that image number bracket.
