While I know that it’s the middle of June, and I don’t think technically spring anymore, I had just a few more things to say about spring.
First, I already miss it.
Second, there’s a field I pass on my way to church every Sunday that, in the spring, takes my breath away. There are two places in the world that when I pass by them in my car, I drive much slower and I have nicknamed them my “moment of zen”. They are both so perfect, so other-worldly that I absolutely must stare. I can’t help myself. This field in the spring is one of them. In fact, this year when I passed by with my husband, he was driving, I took in such a sharp breath and gave out a little yelp that I scared my husband and almost caused him to get in an accident. It’s that beautiful! I’ve told myself every year that I was going to go and ask the owner of that field if I could photograph, someone, anyone in it, but for whatever reason, I never got around to it. Well, this year I was determined and two days later I was on the doorstep of the owner of that wonderful field asking if I could have just a moment in it. Apparently, I wasn’t the first to ask because all I said was, “Hi, I am desperately in love with your field and I’m a photographer…” and she responded, “Sure, go ahead.” Woohoo! So, the next day, I was there in my moment of zen photographing my mother-in-law, some of my best friends, and the owner’s daughter (we decided to do a little trade, the use of her field for some pictures). What came out are currently some of my favorite pictures right now and I just had to share!
