interconnected


The beauty of a landscape coupled with a dramatic sky are exactly what I need to become absorbed in the moment. The past and the future have no meaning when I'm out taking photos or even searching for the perfect spot to shoot a self portrait.

When I am truly absorbed in the moment, I feel a strong connection with the earth and the sky. I believe on a deeper level, we are all connected and related not just to those physically close to us, but to every living being. If we can realize this, feelings of loneliness and isolation begin to vanish as we realize that we are part of a mutually interconnected whole. The wonderful aspect about photography and Flickr is that it keeps us connected. Many of us have strong bonds of friendship yet we have never physically met our friend. The one aspect we do have in common is the earth and sky.

So whether you are shooting a dramatic landscape in Kansas as I was or watching a thunderstorm come to fruition in Africa as Holly was, allow yourself to stay in the moment with no past or future and feel the interconnectedness of our planet and people. It is a small world after all...don't you think?
