Before the days of digital cameras, I owned a 35mm camera. I found lugging this camera with all its acoutremets bothersome and very seldom carried on my outings. Now I have my digital camera constantly with me. So, yesterday I snapped 75 pictures and my sketching again suffered. Unless the subject is a sand dune or an old rotted tree, I can not see the 'vision' in front of me.
I think it is time to leave the camera tucked away in my backpack until after I have successfully completed sketching. It is time, as you can see from this sketch, to hone my sketching skills and that is where my creative juices will now be concentrated.
The lovely autumn colours are fast disappearing and today's rain will bring down more leaves so am doubly glad I hiked this trail today.
It's a long way back to the top!
