And Heaven's Not Far: Photographic Musing and My Father

This is a lake by where I live.  When the weather turns just a bit cooler, there is almost always fog early morning and on some days I am able to watch the sun burn through that fog.  On the day I made these images it would have been my father's 95th birthday.  I'd like to believe that along with the fog and light, I captured his beautiful spirit.

The landscape shifts, emerges and heaven's not far.

Happy birthday, Da.

  1. You not only captured his spirit, but your own. The combination makes my heart and soul sing joyfully. Such a beautiful tribute, Mary Ann. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much Deb. It was one of those mornings: in ana out of the ar in 10 minutes and the fog was just lifting.

  2. "Da" must have been an incredible person to have a daughter like you. Such beauty!

    1. Just seeing this Jane. Thank you for so much.
