White Globes

White Globes © 2010 Bo Mackison

I like taking photographs of rather common sights. This patch of white globes caught my fancy. I liked how part of them were in the setting sunlight while a few were hanging back in the shadows. I liked how the wind was buffeting them. They would lean to the left as the wind blew forcefully, and then come to center when the wind quieted. Over and over, like a dance, lean to the left, return to center, lean to the left.

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.
