The weather has been so perfect this autumn that just about everyone has a smile on their face. These have been some of the most exquisite fall days that I can remember.
Stella and I have been running on the trails around town. When we enter the woods, it feels like stepping into a dream. The evening sun filters down; the leaves slowly twirl from their branches to the forest floor.
It feels so great just to move along the trail drinking in the delicious warm air. Stella stops to listen to the sound of a squirrel rustling under the dry fallen leaves.
Hal Watson, River Falls, WI Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement My photo journal project began as a New Year’s resolution back in 2008. I had always wanted to keep some kind of journal but I didn’t really know where to begin. It wasn’t until that November when I realized I could tie my passion for photography together with my desire to put pen to paper.
It didn’t take too long before I started to observe that this practice was having a wonderful effect on my everyday life ~ I had somehow stumbled on a hidden wellspring that I could drink from whenever I needed it.
Thanks for being interested in what I’m up to, I hope you enjoy it.
