“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.” ~Ray Bradbury I find that most times it’s nice to sit down, wait, and see what happens next … having no expectations of what will happen, just being curious.

I felt like getting out today and shooting, so I waited until the sun started making its descent and headed out about an 90 minutes before sunset. This gave me plenty of time to walk around the trails in McDowell Nature Preserve, feed the mosquitoes, develop a bit of a sweat, and take a few pictures to boot!
