The last Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge for 2017 is Favorites.
The first of the following photographs was originally posted on June 25th.
I’ve had such a rich experience with this image
what it has shown me about myself
my inner journey, inspiration and creativity.
Last summer I was on vacation
a time for rest, quiet and contemplation
for leisurely walks along the Fox River.
A time to slow down
to practice mindfulness and presence
awareness of my surroundings.
That’s when I saw her.
At first I didn’t recognize her
just on the edge of the woods
near the river.
What I love and moves me about this experience
is that I actually saw her.
That I chose to pause
to be with her
to allow a transformation to happen
for the images to flow into each other
and into my camera’s eye.
She was just there
stillness and movement
I saw the grace of a dancer
making her way through the woods.
I came back to visit every day
watching her from different angles
like a dance that progresses
slowly over time.
This week as I look at her image
she dances once again.
I imagine her in black and white
her movements subtly changing
as she glides from one realm
into the next.
