A day in the Mt Hood National Forest
Here's my first photo of 2020… and the first photo after my stroke, taken not far from where I live.
It's kinda funny but while I was going through the stroke I was thinking of potential consequences from the damage that the stroke could cause and if I would still be able to go out and stand in a creek and take a photo. I'm serious. I wasn't afraid of dying. I was afraid of living but without photography. Thankfully I've been blessed to be able to go back to what I love with, perhaps, a new and fresh purpose.
This is a photo of a creek in the Mount Hood National Forest. The moss is in its Winter color and the leaves have left the trees, but the forest is no less beautiful than it is any other time of the year.
I had an exceptional this day with my good friend Chris Byrne and his friend Bronwyn. I needed this day so bad. I was back in my realm doing what I'm meant to do. I was so happy. Thank you Chris. I appreciate all that you do for me.
