All is in the beholder’s eye…

I took the original picture last year while hiking in a local park. Somehow, the solitary little animal shelter sitting in the middle of the huge meadow that had once been a pasture caught my eye. there was a barbed wire fence, old and rusted, between the park and the meadow. Yesterday, that picture fell out of a book and the inspiration to sketch was not to be denied. The quote was one that I had written on the back of the photo.

I wonder what tales this little shed could tell. Who built it, and how long ago? Being a writer, a dozen tales are swimming around in my head. Maybe someday, I’ll use the inspiration in a story.

Look closely, because these are three different poems written  and placed on the same photograph. This cloud was a really scary one that yielded a seriously dangerous storm.

And the last, taking in a different portion of the same picture…

This is one of the ways I combine my love for photography with my journaling. I am a poet and author and so it just seems natural to me to add poetry to pictures I’ve taken and written about.
