"And who will care, who will chide you if you wander away from wherever you are, to look for your soul?” Mary Oliver.
These self portraits are part of a series where I am wearing my mom’s vintage coat from the 1950s – an honoring of her life (she passed just over two years ago). It was during the 50s that she and my father were avid photographers (my father has also passed). They were both outdoor enthusiasts and instilled a love of nature within their children.
It is times when I am in solitude in nature taking photos that I can feel their presence most profoundly. Also, when I am in nature I often feel an inner peace and connection to something larger than myself – where I can feel most connected to my soul.
