Thanking Our Lucky Stars

Thanking Our Lucky Stars

 

Inspired by Adam Woodworth’s art talk during our SPA Spring Exhibit, I hopped in my car last night (9pm…really?) for a little “Star Chasing” and drove the loop from Alton, NH to Lincoln, then across the Kancamagus Highway and finally south through Barrington, New Hampshire and Home. Why I was completely alone at 1 am at a scenic outlook, high on the Kanc Highway, is rather humorous, if you think about it! I was constantly talking to myself. Mostly because I was spooked by the darkness and all the rustling in the woods everywhere I went. But the ever-present fireflies kept reminding me that there were nicer things in the dark, as well! And the fox kits running here and everywhere up in the White Mountains were my treat of the night. There were huge splashes in the water at my feet in Barrington that made me seriously grateful I didn’t live in the south for fear of losing a limb. However, the coyotes singing amongst the cacophony of bullfrogs and crickets reminded me of just how special a place that “Bog” will always to me.

And isn’t it funny that during my six hour adventure, I find my most compelling image was taken while laying in my very own driveway while attempting to capture a little slice of “Home” for my daughter living some 5,000 miles away. Yes, I now, I know, the odds are pretty good that she was also star gazing in her own backyard, laying under her palm tree and looking up at the very same sky. But the truth is, there will be no other view of the stars such as this. For THIS VIEW is where our Miss Meagan discovered “HER STARS”!

“No Words”

“No Words”
Forty hours, give or take a few, after departing the mountains of New Hampshire, I was living a childhood dream. With my daughter by my side, I raised my eyes to the sky, my breathing stopped and the words caught in my throat. The clouds had lifted and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro welcomed us both to Africa.

November 01, 2012 NY-NY  # NYC_8193 edit monochrm edit SRGB web“EXTRA” Down Time

While walking off the Harlem, NYC location set for the television show “Pan Am,” I remembered to do a 180 degree turn and take one last look … and there it was … my favorite capture of the day. Extra’s in a film or tv show spend lots of time waiting and waiting some more. I just loved the dynamics of this moment, with the men facing one way and the women the other. Never mind the fact that it all looked so “period” and there was Extra #3 texting on his cell. Hah, loved it!

“Utterly without words when first entering Ta Prohm, I experienced an overwhelming sense of the centuries of history that surrounded me. At once, I became aware of how blessed I was to add my foot steps this ancient place.

In the jungle’s effort to take back its own, massive vines and tree roots cover the great stone walls and literally weave their way through the buildings, cutting and splitting huge stone structures in their path.

It is often written this temple is virtually ruined. Yet, it is Ta Prohm that I now think of and long to return to.”
