Dan Jurak, long exposure, black and white, fine art, landscape, prairie, clouds, stormy, dark,

Forever nameless
Forever unknown
Forever unconceived
Forever unrepresented
yet forever felt in the soul.

- D.H. Lawrence (Belief)

I went for a short ride in the country this morning after I dropped off one of my kids for university. I didn’t go for very long or very far before I stopped the dusty Rav4 and looked out at the horizon.

This is a new way of seeing for me. It’s a challenge. It’s new. It’s exciting.

I think I now know why I neglected my camera so often in the past year. I was bored. I needed a new reason to get out and start seeing all over again in a new way.

The accompanying words by D.H. Lawrence in a way reflect how I feel about this place. People drive by it everyday. It’s unremarkable and quickly forgotten but it somehow pulled me into the moment never to be forgotten.

This for me is new. I hope you find it a pleasant change from the usual.

Happy shooting,

Dan

Impossible Dreamer

“In the darkest part of the night
Blue shadows conjure you
And in the brightest height of
the daylight
Sometimes I blink ’cause
I think I see you
Dreaming like you do”

- Lyrics by Joni Mitchell

I have only just started on this journey of my dreams.

Be my companion as I stumble and fumble along while trying to find my way through the light and dark places of my imagination.

Happy shooting,

Dan

I’ll be back in a bit… maybe

Seven hundred plus posts in the trash. This isn’t an impulse decision.

My interest in photography and blogging about it has dwindled. It’s time for a new direction. Everything seems old and having been done a million times before.

New directions lead to new horizons, I hope.

It’s possible that I will re-visit this place so I will maintain a skeleton presence here on WordPress.

Dan
