Vigil Strange I Kept On The Field

The base I live on is rather small and not largely populated, but still it can be hard to find a quiet spot free of troops drilling, or people fishing and walking their dogs; I'm even leery of the occasional hunter. So, it was nice to discover this field without fences where no one else seems to go that I can wander in quiet privacy. It's wonderful to be alone in nature as the sun is setting--just to watch the light shift and see birds wing across a golden turning pink sky. Soon cooler weather will drive most casual visitors and noisy birds away. Last year I felt as if the beach near my house belonged to me, as I was the only one who claimed possession of it when it was twenty degrees and the wind was whipping hard against your face. No other footsteps followed mine when I cut a path across it in the snow on a bright December day. Soon, I hope to claim small corners of this base as well--places where no one else will venture once the temperatures drop, but still hold beauty to me.

  8. these photos are quite striking. they have an ethereal quality and sort of a quiet loneliness to them. haunting, I suppose. the second one especially. it gives me chills. makes me want to go on an adventure (and then return from it for hot coco in front of a fire). Only I don't have a fire...so coco will have to do!

    ps. love the sweater!

  9. Your life sounds wonderful. Do you even have a job? Even if you do, it seems like you just walk around in beautiful places and take pictures.

  12. I totally understand that sense of ownership that comes with beautiful and secluded spots in nature... It's so lovely to see your special spots as well as your outfits! :)

    PS the short hair is INCREDIBLE.

  13. I love this outfit with your new hair cut! just the right amount of girlie crossed with tomyboy - no easy task. That bag is also making me rethink my attitude towards backpacks. It's great!

    PS: I love solitude in nature - I can totally relate to wanting your beach back!
