Summer stirs the soul to celebrate by being in nature. Long days and warm nights spent at the beach, camping on a boat all energize our beings for the year to come. It’s the opportune time to experience natures’ wonder and to just be who you are.
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus wrote, ‘You can’t step into the same river, twice.’ Today, most of us are too busy to contemplate how much nature’s motion surrounds us, or is within us. We don’t normally see how interconnected rhythms of nature are apart of us.
Modern society plugs us into the Internet, and that can open doors, but sometimes too much of being Internet connected disconnects us from the mysteries of the natural world that can be transformational. Scientists, innovators and inventors throughout history took the time to observe nature and her interconnected rhythms.
I would like to show how nature’s interconnectedness can lead us to discoveries about our world and ourselves.
Please enjoy my gallery of this season.
Every month Ramona du Houx exhibits her work on her online gallery and at Gallery Manitou in Solon, Maine. Every month the theme changes reflecting the personality of the “lightgraphs,” she has chosen for the month. “Lightgraphs” are a technique she created that makes photographs resemble watercolors.
