Foggy Days Like This...


Foggy Days Like This..., originally uploaded by sMacshot.

...when the air feels still, like a salty veil blessing all it enshrouds, I notice more the sound of my footsteps than the tidal rhythm punctuated by the two muffled foghorns, and an errant seagull's cry,which seems actually more like a cranky toddler in need of a nap. Days like this move at a different pace, on a separate plane.


**I will be back to post something more current as soon as my new-camera-fog clears. Soon, I hope! Happy Sunday, all!

your written word is equally as beautiful as your photograph. Love this. What kind of flowers are they?
gorgeous!!!

No idea, Sandy, but they were very dense and 'hard' like wool-covered buttons. And they sorta made me want to eat them roasted with salt by the handful...

angela simione said...

That photo is so cool! So I have been so busy lately I had to give up my daily blog reading for a bit... new camera? Do tell!

(I guess I will scroll down through your blog and find out all the juicy details)

Yes, Jeremy, got an XSi (Canon Digital Rebel) in a special upgrade deal because Canon sorta messed up on the repair of my beloved G6 which was the first camera I'd ever bought, and so loved. It's gone forever, and I am really heartbroken. :P But I am excited how to shoot with a better camera, and it will help me evolve, photographically...how is the house? Hope all is great!

Love this photo! It has such a nostalgic feeling to it.

Thank you, Little Brown Rabbit, it might be in my shop at some point, it's really nice, printed out.

hi Susan,
I was going to ask if you will be listing this on Etsy, and voila- you answered my question. How are things going w/ the new Canon?? Cant wait to see what you've taken so far. xoxo

I am loving this new camera every day more and more. There is so much to learn. New photos of my progress, soon!!

this makes me think of autumn by my grandparent's cabin, wandering a forested muddy path, and all the little things we found along the way.. i love this image. i feel so warm and wonderful looking at it.

sMacThoughts said...

Mirthquake .... thank you, and welcome!

red nails .... I love hearing how a photo which conjures up strong memories for me can also do the same (yet completely different ones!) for another!

Thanks for your recent post. This is a gorgeous image I love how dreamy it is. Makes me want to go out with my polaroid :)

sMacThoughts said...

yes, soon I will be packing all mine up for a trip to the beach house. Seems to be almost the only time I am willing to part with some film!
