summer solitude


This past weekend, I had the luxury of wandering alone through Historic Savannah with a camera and a sketchpad.  Two full days of bliss (read this as - no kids), gorgeous architecture and southern hospitality.  *sigh*

As I was walking along Bay Street, amidst the hustle and bustle, I spotted this sweet toadtool.  While you can usually find me sprawled on my belly shooting for just the right angle, I was not certain that the respectable ladies and gents of Savannah were ready to see my feet in the air.  So, I set my camera on the ground and just shot "blind." I love the softness of the out of focus grass, the diffused light, and the feeling of quiet that speaks volumes.  Such a delightful surprise. 

Where are you finding your solitude today?  Seek it out and share it with us.

Excellent captures! You sure got lucky with your "blind" shot! On this grey, cool day, I'll be seeking solitude in my studio....
