August Break 2012

I am joining Susannah Conway’s “The August Break 2012 – looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and  expectations of blogging”  It’s everyday blogging with fewer words.


Bo Mackison is a photographer and the owner of Seeded Earth Studio LLC.  She is working through a backlog of photos she’s taken this summer, while she enjoys a partial August Break.

This week: New York City.

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.

      You are welcome, Dotti. And yes, I think there is a lot of serenity in these gardens, even though they are in one of the largest urban areas in the world. Amazing!

  3. thanks for your comment! I love this photo, it reminds me of a fountain we have in downtown Santiago, Chile 🙂
    have a lovely day!
