Riding The Arizona Trail On Horseback in Sycamore Canyon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The Canyon from Horseback

The young don’t know enough
About being young
They squander youth
And never know ’til later.

Any lad of twelve will testify
An eight-year-old can’t even qualify
To be a child
At eighteen our own ignorance
At fifteen is finally written
In language we comprehend:
We know the score
Reality’s the icing on the cake
Of youthful fantasies;
When the young grow old
They know a lot
About being young
But almost nothing
About being old.

— Jack Purcell from Poems of the New Old West

“It is precisely because we resist
the darkness in ourselves
that we miss the depths
of the loveliness, beauty,
brilliance, creativity, and joy
that lie at our core.”

— Thomas Moore

What would shadows be without light?

What would light be without shadows?

So much of what existence  is all about,

One can not exist do without the other.

Sunlight and Shadows — Images by kenne

I walk in the morning sunlight
or is it in the morning shadows
you choose the perspective.

A bird crosses my path
disappearing in the shadows
only to quickly fly away.

I perceived each morning walk
with reference to a particular frame
where “same” events are not the same.

Arizona Trail on Horseback-8-Edit-1-art-72Arizona Trail on Horseback — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Recently I spent some time photographing wildflowers in the Molino Basin. One of the trails through the campgrounds is part of the Arizona Trail. When I arrived, there was a horse trailer with three horses and four guys saddling-up the horses. Since I was there to photograph wildflowers, I started hiking the trail.  About the time I reach a section of the basin that had experienced a wildfire a couple of years ago, I looked back and so two riders with a packhorse. Of course, I had to take a few photos, and at the first opportunity, I asked how far they were going. They had begun a three-day, two-night ride to a ranch just outside Oracle, Arizona, which was on the northside of the Santa Catalina Mountains. I wished the well and continued photographing wildflowers.
