I was in that quiet place today, you know the place where time doesn’t matter. You just feel and see everything around you, but yet are so focused that distractions aren’t a distraction.
One of the reason I like photography is it allows me to get into that place. I also prefer to shoot photographs alone, because of this need to be in that quiet place (I just realized this). I will, however, join groups of photographers for an outing, but I mostly like to watch and ask questions.
I was in this special place twice today, once at work while working on a programming challenge, and then in the garden while I photographed a few flowers (OK, maybe more than a few). The photography walk was interesting as the gardens were busier than normal, but I hardly noticed any of the people. I was so intent on looking for shapes and colors (and light) that I barely noticed.
Have you done anything, like photography, that has allowed you to get into the zone where time just flows?
I’ll post more images from my walk today over the next few days, so if you like flowers, get ready.
