#AMonthOnFilm – Looking up

6—Looking up

Laying in the grass at sunset, at the edge of the yard where it meets the corn field looking up at the beautiful sky. I listened to the corn blowing in the breeze, heard the loud insects buzzing all around me, felt the breeze blowing across my skin and the pressure of the solid ground under me, the cushion of the grass on my back and bugs biting at my ankles. I tried to absorb it all, take it all in among the anxiety raging in my body and mind. I tried to enjoy the moment instead of worrying I’d totally missed the shot by missing focus and not having the convenience of checking the image on the back of my camera—film doesn’t work that way. Even if I totally messed up this shot it can still remind me of this beautiful moment in God’s creation.
