The Park

“Wilderness to the people of America is a spiritual necessity, an antidote to the high pressure of modern life, a means of regaining serenity and equilibrium.”

~ Sigurd F. Olson, (1899-1982) American author and environmentalist

When I am overwhelmed, irritated, or simply bored with the demands of daily routine I love to escape to a “park.”  Whether that park is national, state, or local; it is the sound of birds, the fresh air, and the enormity of the great outdoors that often puts my own concerns into perspective.  This shot was taken on a recent visit to Banning State Park in Minnesota.

Quotes for Photographers

I sure enjoy viewing the work of other photographers on wordpress!  Some of them have been kind enough to follow my blog as well.  So, to celebrate this common interest I have added a new category — photographer quotes.  Wise words from famed photographers that may be of interest.

Dorothea Lange was an influential American documentary photographer and photojournalist, best known for her Depression-era work for the Farm Security Administration (Wikipedia).

I hope this category will appeal to others too.
