It’s the second week of the Be Still – Fifty Two class I’m taking with Kim Klassen. I am loving this class and the gentle and quiet images from Kim and all of the students I have the honour of seeing every day.
This week we were photographing something simple and leaving room in the frame…for nothing. This has been a challenge for me. I’ve struggled to find a place of personal quiet and calm and I have snapped many photographs of all manner of things around the house that haven’t quite captured the essence of what I was looking for.
I found that elusive sense of stillness and peace when we were out for a walk on this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. And this. A single leaf in laying in the sparkling snow–a reminder of the autumn that was; a clear view of the winter that is; and, in my eyes, the promise of spring to come.
