Let me be clear: when I say I'm shooting, 99.9% of the time I mean my camera. I like to make puns by saying "I'm going to shoot somebody today" on the days I have photo sessions scheduled. My husband once said that he hopes nobody can read our calendar because it says "9:00 shoot: Smith Family." If I were a hitman, I could see that being a problem. My entire crime life would be right there for police to get me with. But for me, shooting with my camera is therapy.
Today was a brilliant autumn day. I had to do paperwork for LAF Lines. And then I was itching to get out and take some people-less photos. I wanted to be outside. I took a quick drive to my favorite summer spot, Camp Dainava. To me this is the land of many joys. I find much inspiration here. And on a day like today, much peace.
Remember in the beginning of the year I made a resolution to go out and shoot for sport every month? Well, I was really good about it until about June. I have been shooting, but not necessarily with intent. And once school started I kept very busy photographing my son's marching band and cross country team. So, today my shooting was very personal. All the while I was snapping these photos, I could hear shooting from a distance- from a gun. It must be hunting season.
