The art of walking -

"Walking the Big Sky"
digital collage by Mick Mather
"... among men and women, those in love do not always announce themselves with declarations and vows. But they are the ones that weep when you're gone. Who miss you every night, especially when the sky is so deep and beautiful, and the ground so very cold ..."

Blue jay way in both ears, facing forward heading west.

Your b&w work is sublimely calm and poised.

I'd like to walk with her, on the beach, right now.

It's not raining but pouring in Helsinki.

Thanks, John ... my fear it is that this is the calm before the storm.

SusuPetal:
It's the same here. High winds, grim sky, driving rain. :|

I like how the figure is way over to the side-- and the big sky is the balance--

Thanks, Donna. I thought about placement carefully and this was what worked best for my eye as well.

This looks like a walking meditation - with room to breathe. I like the placement of the figure too.

Walking, as you may already know, more often than not is surely a meditation.

I like the quote..sad but beautiful. I wonder if this lady ponders on a loved one now passed on?

I believe that she has yet to learn to love herself and, therefore, is suspicious of those who love her. Very sad indeed.
