A Moment Through the Lens

As Minor White,  photographer until his death in 1976,  is once quoted as saying ‘No matter how slow the film Spirit stands still long enough for the photographer it has chosen.’

I do believe that this random ‘visitor’ to my deck has ‘posed’ sometimes for me until I got the creative shot I wanted. As a student of Taoism, I feel that even inanimate objects have spirit energy. Certainly, this beautiful Cape Ann MA gull has a strong Spirit.

I think that the former owner of my home used to feed him and leave water ~ I no longer do so and sometimes feel badly but having a little dog that likes to chase it away and there being many sea gulls ‘in town’ don’t want to get into the habit of feeding. Yet, the gull continues to come for brief visits; well onto five years now. Didn’t think that gulls ‘shape  shifted’ but perhaps they do and it is a ‘Spirit’ watching over me. Isn’t that a lovely thought? Hmm, Life is filled with essence and surprises and gifts. This gull is a gift.

Wishing you many spiritual gifts each moment. xxx
