One With the Tree…

DSC_1914Sometimes you just have to become with the tree. I am actually surprised that I had not posted these already.  I did them sometime ago.  They are some of my favorites.  DSC_1916The weather was so touch and go this past trip.  One minute it was raining and the next it was a sunny as could be.  I should not be surprised considering last year I experienced all four season in one hour (that sadly is not an exaggeration).   Thanks to the luck of the buffalo, it was quite sunny and beautiful when I took these. This guy and his buddies gave me the perfect scene.  Just hanging out by the trees in Prairie Dog town. DSC_1922I didn’t have to do a lot to these photos.  They did the work on their own.  The sun was right. The buffalo were cooperating. I stuck with my big lens.  I trusted my fingers, my mind to make the right call.  DSC_1930I was reluctant to say that.  I don’t know if that is true.  I was trying to think about it because I needed these pictures today.   A reminder I guess.  We all have those moments.  Overthink things.  Something that we’ve been doing for a while.  Something that we are trying to make  goal of.  We begin to doubt our abilities.  I didn’t really doubt my ability. I doubted my ability to be able to offer certain versions of photos.

A few people have suggested that they will be reaching out for photos.  I was also thinking about the upcoming September show.  I get overwhelmed and I overthink.  When I am home I tend to think about the photos that I’m taking. I overthink them.   Most are taken with a purpose these days so I’m constantly thinking about it.  Worried about getting them just right and lately it seems like I’ve hit that rut again.  When I’m on vacation, there is no thinking. No focusing. Just doing.  I need to learn to do that everyday.  Things turn out better when you don’t overthink things.

DSC_1950This set of vacation photos…by far some of my favorite.  I’ve still got quite a few go through and have not shared many of them on here, but I am done with my buffalo photos…they are awesome.  At least to me.  Hope you agree.

Have a beautiful day and tomorrow.

  1. You already said it. No thinking just doing. The hardest think to do in sports is hit a baseball. When the great NY Yankees catcher Yogi Berra was in a slump his manger said, “think Yogi, think,” to which he replied, “you want me to think and hit?” I have all sorts of rituals I do when I work… just to get me out of myself.
