Do not copy nature too much.
Art is an abstraction.

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.”
― William Butler Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats

Real People Series - Candid Street Portraits

I had a wonderful reunion with a bestie I haven't seen since relocating to California. There was much to show her so Balboa Park was top on the list. As we walked the park, there appeared a woman in costume, looking like some type of fantasy. I only had a short lens and was fortunate to be able to capture a few photos of her.

“If possible, it is best to have a balance between the civilisation of city life and the solitude of country living. Too much solitude and we can become isolated and lose the benefit of human culture, progress, and communication. Too much urban life and we lose our spiritual essence and our fundamental native homeostasis.

Many people instinctively withdraw to the country or the seaside when they feel the noise of city life is drowning out the quiet, inner voice of peace. The country does what the city cannot. It quietens the mind and brings simplicity into one’s life.

The city does what the country cannot. It enlivens the mind and brings culture into one’s life. We try to engage with both and benefit from the well-roundedness of a complete experience of all that life has to offer.”
― Donna Goddard, The Love of Devotion

This grand show is eternal.
It is always sunrise somewhere;
the dew is never all dried at once;
a shower is forever falling;
vapor is ever rising.
~Albert Einstein

A warm summer sunset with the fog,
prominent during this season, encroaching on the scene.
The birds, seemingly ever present at the ocean,
make their way to wherever birds go at night ... it's a mystery to me. They always seem to be flying with a purpose, an immediacy, to get somewhere. Some flying quickly north, others south, but never stopping to enjoy the colors. They are an integral ingredient and make my evenings at the beach complete.

"My wish is to stay always like this,
living quietly in a corner of nature."
- Claude Monet.

I feel the same as Monet. I seek out small, somewhat private corners where I can get lost in the moment watching the theater change from moment to moment. It could be a new cloud that formed or the entrance of a small bird that doesn't notice my presence. Colors play a big role in my little dramas. Where I live, the seasons don't vary too much as in other areas. There's a simple beauty to be found daily if I just keep my eyes aware of my surroundings.
