Another Day, Another November

Another day of autumn, yet I can’t quite say that.

[Repost from November 2020]

In my attempt for another seasonal photo session, I ended up at the botanical garden close to home.
It’s where I usually go with a book, for a cozy spot to sunbathe or just have a mouth-full of peace and quiet and connect with nature, barefoot walking on the grass.

It was this Saturday, at noon. Plan of the day was making Plum Knedles which I like so much at this time of the year. Instead I got my bike and camera and headed out for more autumn scenery, since the sun was begging for it. To my surprise, I found lots and lots of flowers even though it’s so cold outside.

Days like this are a reminder photography thought me so much. Brought so much insight into what I can and can’t do, my ability to comprehend the things around and how I relate. On days like this, showing me that things are simply more than what they might seem. This beauty, was meant to be just warming up with the camera before getting to all the flowers around, even though I could feel my curiosity tickled by its texture.

Resembling fireworks, it was surrounding a palm tree, majestically keeping it in the spotlight, creating a little oasis in the middle of the garden.
Here it is, in the list of mouth-full of things I’ve learnt from photography, is keep trying until what I visualized matches the end result.
Yeah, everyone keeps saying things like that. I’ve seen it before but not quite so tangible as when I set my lens on certain things. “Lensing” it for tens of minutes searching every angle, taking picture after picture till I find the best light, but in the end it all pays off.

It has taken me years of frustration and endless attempts at crafts and arts to figure myself out. It’s the creative curse, the labor of love, because in the end it all happens due to the amount of emotions to share, as any artist would say. There’s a heavy burden to carry, but what a story to tell.
Every act of creation, leaves a mark, a lesson or a message to carry on. Every creation is all that summed up, it’s a little piece of my soul, is a smile, a thought, a story to be carried out. That is why I believe all it takes is heart.

All the love,
