This morning I got up at fife and left for a walk hoping to see some wild animals. I only saw one nervous female deer. I did hear strange sounds and for a moment was flooded with a fear of unknown potentially dangerous wild animals. My instinct made me quickly move out of the woods to a more open area where I can see what is around me. The strange sounds turned out to be of human origin, the most dangerous animal around. The navy boats make a roaring weird sound. Later there were some far away explosions too.
I did reflect on that fear of nature, the fear of being suddenly confronted with an unexpected life threatening danger. It is what makes us do so much to get things under control. And it is probably what makes people behave so destructive towards nature. Am I able to face and accept a sudden death or injury whithout becoming fearful??? Probably not...
The early morning was like usual but with a nervous tension in the air. During the day I heard bad news from two friends. It is difficult to concentrate on working today. The outer world seems to get nuts.
Nonetheless I keep seeing the beauty around me, made some more foto's. It takes me away. When I am in the fotographing mode, my vision changes and I forget everything around me.
I chose two series from this morning shoots
