A little instant love

Comments Off

Unseasonable warm day here in New Hampshire the temperature high reached 56 degrees sunny blue sky like an early spring day. The neighborhood country dirt roads are thick in wet mud from all the recent rain showers. Mud or no mud this trooper pulled up her winter boots and headed out the door taking full advantage of this gorgeous day. A photo-walk with my new love the Polaroid SX-70 camera loaded with the new Impossible Polaroid PX-70 color protection film.

I love how this new color protection formula burst out an incredible dreamy color, popping out more of the blue and green color tones.

Stay well my friend!

Color of October in Vermont

Island Pond, Vermont

Muted autumn color reflect off the pond as village church steeples ring out hourly.

Many old barns still stand proud holding onto their stories of long ago

Stunning red, yellow, and orange, the birch, maple and oaks lit up the trails of woodsy duff we wandered through.

The sound of chilled rushing water so pure a cascade of waterfall prop up autumn leaves like bright colored sails downstream.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year!

The humidity we have been immersed in sticky salty sweat over the past couple of days has dripped away leaving the early evenings comfortable in a delicate glow of twilight. A perfect night to peddle my way to the marsh and sit in the silence of nature with camera in hand.  My moment of mediation.

I gathered bottled water, my journal, and camera from the quilt lined basket on my bike and leaned it against a small trunk of oak. The dark murky water laid still mirrored hues of summer gold sun, green vegetation, and the blue sky.  I sat nested in the softness of needles from tall pines in the dusky shadow along the water edge listening to the loud message of a bullfrog croaking when I was startled by a big splash followed by plop plop. The water rippled in a series of small waves, to my surprise from the dark water pop-up the heads of two playful beavers unafraid of my presence.

Oh, the small gift nature offers to inspire when we take a moment to slow down stop, and breath in the quiet moments.
