Yes, I know it is called Wordless Wednesday but I am Word-full and cannot work without a bit of an introduction. For me, photography is my center. It is a time when the rest of the world and stress falls away. My perception is laser-focused only on what is in my immediate environment and what is in my lens.
I may spend hours walking intently through a field to capture a jumpy dragonfly the size of my pinky. Spending Sunday mornings in the garden at the American Orchid Society before they closed was nirvana to my soul. Nothing existed except the reach and stretch of those gorgeous petals straining for heaven and their sweet, whispered prayers.
Nature photography evokes the Drakaina in me – the Earth Speaker. I can think of no better way to celebrate and speak of Gaia than to spread the wonder of Her beauty. Connect with me on Flickr as Shakti Womyn and make sure you join the MotherHouse of the Goddess Flickr group to share your own images!
