11/52 Portraits – Roots

This week was perfect timing for this 11th of 52 weekly self portraits.

Roots… do I like to roam the world? or am I happy on my patch of land on it.

Hubby and I just returned to our ranch in McCall, Idaho after five months living in our motor home in Bakersfield, California. Although I had a wonderfully creative five months in Southern California, I am deliciously happy to be HOME! I am not comfortable as a nomad. I am at home in my forest, rooted in good company with our grand trees.

Our motor home is parked near our ranch house and I’m using it as an art studio/office now. Because they are so close to each other I was able to capture this shot of myself between the mobile home and the ‘rooted’ home. I am giving a STOP hand to the RV and a thumbs up to the home, with a forest backdrop.


I’m so glad you stopped by. Are you a nomad? or a home body? City, town or country? I am always enriched when you comment. Have a great day!

    You captured an illusion in this photo… I thought you were floating or had jumped as the shot was taken, but after a second look, I see that you’re standing on a brown area and the shadow “beneath” you is from the small tree. I’ll bet that being home makes you feel like you’re walking on air!

      OMG! That is so awesome… I didn’t notice it, but it is so cool! Thanks for seeing that… I love the idea of floating on air. xoxox
