By Ted Grussing
… there are those who live in houses like me and there are those who make do in the natural surroundings in the neighbor … appropriate that this House Finch is a neighbor that I shot in the Pinion Pine in the backyard. Late afternoon one fine April day and undoubtably I had One out for her afternoon hunt. I saw the local Bobcat yesterday afternoon, but he seems to be steering clear of the area that he and One had their encounter and for sure One is too … probably a healthy decision for both of them, but especially One.
A quiet day mostly devoted to finishing the “People” portfolio and I trimmed it down to just under 3,000 images. Kinda makes you think a little, when you have fourteen family members in a photo and you’re the only one still here … soon enough, that will self-correct, but until then there is a lot of life to live and things to do … and beauty to photograph and to share.
Running way late, so will wrap the day … hope you have a fantastic day today … keep breathing, smile and choose to have a day that makes you fun to be around.
Somewhere, a child is crying to me – somewhere in the future, crying to me,
calling me by name, by words of enchantment.
I almost see its face, somewhat like my own long ago.
I almost hold it fast to me.
I, almost stretching my arms to take it out of the air,
feel anew strange currents of life passing in and out of me.
