Journal

I'm Nina, a photographer, film maker and forever wanderer.  Passionate about nature, the great outdoors and all of life's adventures.  This is the place where I keep all my 'field notes'

I am a people watcher by nature.  

I can sit and stare in a dream like state for hours nursing a cup of something delicious and just watch the world go by.  It's what I like to call my mediative state.  

And I may appear to those around me to be lost in thought, miles away, but I am actually (quite possibly) more alert and at peace with myself then if I was in the throes of life.

When most are eager to rush past to reach their next appointment, I like to take things slowly and just notice stuff go by.  But mostly faces.  

Faces fascinate me.

In a world that is always moving so fast - even nature can be a bit eager at certain moments of the day or with the turning of the seasons to 'get stuff done'.  But sometimes you come across a being just as curious as yourself.  Just as fascinated and intrigued.  

These moments for me are are like finding a kindred spirit.  

Nothing said, no words need to be spoken but acknowledgement of a comfortable state, acutely aware of being in each others presence and an understanding that flows far deeper than 'it has to be so' is met.
