Brandy Day275: Sweet Smell of Heaven..

image

Backed up to the pond. Midnight rolls around with a storm trailing behind it. Somehow that doesn’t matter. The back is open, windows down, the music on & I’m in heaven. I’ve never experienced something so peaceful.
The sweet smell of the country air. The silence of the night and the soothing splash of the water against the rocks. At that moment there was no other place I wanted to be.

Brandy Day232: Fishin’ For Something More

image

I chuckle as I cast my line out thinking how many parents take their children fishing, the most patient past time, for the most impatient at heart.
Relaxing and stressful all in the same hand, unless of course you’re fishing upstream in Alaska during salmon season, haha!
I hit the local ‘pay here to fish’ pond, simply to relax & a decent place to watch the sun melt beyond the trees in front of me. I love nothing more than summer country nights!

Brandy Day105: Light Up My World

image

Insanely clear night. Cold yet comfortable. So many stars lighting up the night sky.
Its crazy to think how bright, yet how far away stars actually are. Burning objects that have already burnt out by the time we see them. Something so hard to grasp hold of.
I love the peace and sense of comfort found in a night sky. The openness that it offers. The wonder that it holds. The beauty of its existence. The excitement you feel when seeing a shooting star. Thank you for being that star I wished upon. For lighting up my world.

Brandy Day97: Night Crawlers

image

I love night time. Its like another world. Everything looks different. More mysterious. The moon lights your way while twinkling stars watch from a far.
Its rained for a couple days now, almost like I’m in Seattle. They tell me it rains a lot there, I’ve never been 😉 During the summer when its warm and the pavement is hot and it rains, Best. Smell. Ever! Tonight reminded me of this. Not to mention all the crawlers, I wanted to call a good friend, grab some beers & poles and hit the closet pond.

Brandy Day86: I’m a Machine

image

Everything has a story. Where its been, what it holds, the duration of its existence. This store sits in the middle of nowhere small town Indiana, inside the store sits an old woman who could probably tell you everything about everyone in that town.
Learning is listening, watching, loving & caring. Looking in the eyes and seeing the heart. Feeling the despair in a simple touch of a chilled hand. The warmth of the soul and gentle kindness through laughter.
Shot in the middle of somewhere on a back road knowing my heart is a machine.

Brandy Day82: Even Split

image

This is one photo. One day. One evening. One sunset. LOVE this photo. It looks like two. Like a sunny day. A cloudy day. Split evenly with the tree. A middle ground. Today’s sunset was beautiful. I finally had a hard time choosing which photo I was going to use.
Its like a coin, like everything or anything it has two sides. This was one of those photos I captured but hadn’t realized its true beauty until I looked at it later.
Shot at my local pond, like a country song 😉

Brandy Day58: Cold Comfort

image

When in pain or fear. Discomfort or stress. I run to what makes sense. What comforts me or eases me. Photography. It doesn’t matter if it’s cold, rain, snow, night or day I need to shoot. Its my escape. I find this place to be beautifully comforting. I accidentally found it last October while headed to pick up  flash (randomly enough). I find myself out here often, though it’s some distance from my house. A scenic pond surrounded by trees and thoughts.
