It seems that most of my recent posts have centered around the title of this blog – random cameras. While it is generally the focus here, I have not said a whole lot about what other things have been going on. Right now I am sitting on the front porch, listening to the gentle rain, and the birds starting their day, coffee at my side, and an HP mini laptop on my lap. May is my favorite month of the year, as it progresses from the anticipation of April to the promises of summer. The varied hues of green, and the progression of blooms in the garden are a tonic that nourishes my psyche. It's a serene morning here, and it brings clarity as well as energy. It's all to easy to be inundated with work and the negative things that are going on the world. Step out into nature – listen, look, and enjoy what is there. As a naturalist, I know an awful lot about the natural world. Photography has always been a way for me to become more engaged in nature, and when I am in the garden photographing, I always see some scene that is captivating. May is sort of the like opening presents. Every day is something new, and the growth of the plants, emerging insects, migrating songbirds, the entire landscape is alive with promise and rebirth. We plan for the the things we will do in the summer, and before you know it, summer is almost over. May is different. It goes by a little too quickly, and as I grow older, I am aware of the limited number of Mays there are ahead of me. All the reason to enjoy them even more.
Now, for some May images.
