There we were – back in the Highlands of Scotland, the weather playing its part and cooperating with us, and it’s a trip worth sharing.
I stress fairly easily – my children will vouch for that – so I have had to find coping strategies over the years to help be from having a meltdown. This is one of my best – to focus on something very ordinary, get right in and personal, look at it carefully, consider its history, its place in the world. Photograph it. Suddenly you’ve opened up a whole door of perception – the perspective has changed, and the world has tilted just a little in your favour.
Sometimes its elusive – I can’t find the right key to unlock that stratagem, but it’s still a great player in my box of tricks. I suppose the modern parlance would be to call this ‘mindfulness’. I don’t mind that. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, call it whatever, I will keep it close.
I have made these images less than the resolution needed for printing so they don’t get copied and used by some nefarious villain willing to steal them, but if you are really wanting to have them decorate your walls , then shimmy on down to Society 6 , link here Society6 page and you can navigate to various formats from there.
