Foggy Moon Bridge Morning
by Roman Johnston
3 years have passed since I have visited these magical gardens in the fall. I woke early that morning to check the weather report and find FOG in the forecast. Giddy with anticipation I arrived early like a kid rushing downstiars on Christmas morning. It was one of my favorite shoots to date.

Beauty isn’t uncommon. Beauty is all around us. All we need to do is open our eyes to it. The pace of our world has gotten to a point that we concentrate on where we are going instead of slowing down and seeing what is right in front of us. That is where my work comes from.
Taking the time to slow down, visiting everyday events that amaze us. Our common getaways, like tulip festivals, or that hike back to a local waterfall. If you arrive a little earlier than normal, you can almost feel the vibe of the place before the buzz of activity comes in and divides your attention. Get a little lost….not everyone who wanders is lost, and not everyone lost is trying to be found.
So take a walk with me, discover a waterfall through the trees, or enjoy a foggy morning in the Japanese Garden. Slow down and breathe. Remember that you are supposed to be in balance with your world, and enjoy your day.
