Taking pictures for me, is an expression of utter play, innocence and joy. And, often, in the land, of communion and reverence.
In the late 1990's, for six years, I walked on the beach and in its rock pools daily. Twice daily. Agape. Which, I am told, is Greek for Love. Or, to be in a state of wonder. I experienced both. At the time, I possessed no camera. This daily exposure to rock and algae imprinted directly into my tissues and fluids. Over time, becoming indistinguishable from my body. We are after all, all One.
These days I do have a camera. Yet I am still as agape. Still as child-like, as are we all. Not trained in photography, I simply "snap" my shots on my small uncomplicated digital Canon, (or more recently, in Kakadu, on My Panasonic Lumix TZ30). I don't generally try, and often I can't even see the image clearly in my camera as the fierce Australian sun's glare fuses with the view screen, all a-blur. And of course, I don't have my glasses on.
What captures me again and again, is this voice of the Land. Its shrill and subtle beauty. This vibrating penetrating echo; Body-Land. Can you hear it?
