Cast Away

Of all those that set sail
in the dying light of the year

That rode out
on bone-cold days

Only one
hove up here

Unknown and unnoticed.
Until now.

    1. Thank you. It was one of those serendipitous events where words and image just flashed together. Odd. Maybe I need to take a pill or get more sun. 🙂

  1. I’m with Linda, words and image are so perfect together, and both are excellent alone. I too often look for those leaves that are caught or speared. I even made a category for “caught” as a keyword in Lightroom so I could see them all at once if I wanted to. It’s an interesting phenomenon.

    1. Thanks so much Lynn. My eye seems to gravitate to these lost ones — I like your idea of tagging the pics. Lightroom, eh. Have you been using it long? I’m about to upgrade my laptop (more memory, more memory, more memory) and Lightroom is on my get-this-asap list. 🙂

      1. I’ve used it for over five years – can’t remember how long exactly. It’s more complicated than it should be, and it’s easy to make mistakes in the beginning that mix up your photographs’ locations – I still am dealing with that. But it’s so, so useful for keeping everything organized, and for processing. I also use the NIK Color Efex Pro and Silver Efex Pro, both of which are free, have lots of fun presets that can be tweaked, and can be accessed directly from Lightroom with just a click. If/when you get Lightroom be sure to watch a tutorial or take a class before importing your images to it. The processing part of it is more intuitive than the organizing part, in my experience.
