Somthing in the air
So I had the chance the other day to go out and wander to shoot here where I live. Few things I love more than creating in my backyard so to say. But I am blessed to live where I do in the Shenandoah Valley, and I am minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park and many different national forest and state parks.
I share all this because I noticed there is something in the air. In the woods or forest, there is just something in the air. And when you pass or drive through a campground, there is indeed something with the grills and campfires. Not to mention here in Augusta County Va. when you cross one of the many farms especially when they are cutting hay or harvesting.
Smell is one of those senses that brings back memories. The fragrance has this peculiar effect on me that relaxes and energizes driving through the forest windows down or out hiking around the lake there is just something that is so very soothing to me here. The memories of days past are all good ones even if they sometimes hurt because I long for that day again it is still good. These things these places and this air make me feel good inside and help me regain focus, and it merely makes me feel better and at peace.
