The thing about spring is: it's really cold in the morning, but warm by noon. So, if you have to get up and leave your house early...you want to dress warmly. And then later you'll be like "Oh, it's so lovely! Why am I wearing these silly clothes?!" (This does happen to other people right?) This morning I had an early doctor's appointment, and a little time afterwards before class. This worked out well because I was able to dress warmly for my appointment and change once the early morning coldness passed. However, I only ended up with a few minutes to change because my appointment went way longer than expected...so this is what I hastily threw together.
Today I decided to enjoy the warm weather and venture out of my usual photo location. I started walking on a trail I'm not really familiar with, just looking for anywhere that seemed good for photos. I found an area with lots of big boulder-like rocks that I thought was neat looking, so I ventured up the hill towards it and began wondering around it trying to figure out where to set up my tripod and all that. As I made my way around the rocks I was stunned to see a random guy sitting on the very top of the largest rock. He was facing the sun and it looked like he was meditating. I tried to hurry away quietly because I felt really bad/weird about walking into his meditation zone. As I headed back down the steep heel (trying not to fall and break an ankle) I saw out of the corner of my eye some shirtless guy doing Tai-Chi or something. Again, this guy just kind of appeared out of no where. In both instances it seemed like I should've noticed them way sooner...but instead they just sort of popped up. I was so surprised and felt so awkward that I almost gave up on the idea of taking photos and just headed back home. But the more I thought about it the more I admired them. I'm always so concerned that someone will see me out taking my pictures and think I'm a total weirdo/narcissist. But these guys didn't seem to care about my presence, they didn't even seem to notice me. I promised myself I'd try to be more like them in the future. And then I took these pictures. They didn't turn out that great, but whatever. The end. (I'm really bad at endings...they are always kind of abrupt. Sorry if that was really boring.)
