Abandoned

 

Someone loved it there
Born to live the rugged life
Gone without regrets

“Abandoned” was made in British Columbia one winter when I was driving through the Wells Grey Provincial Park.  When I saw this the snow was quietly dropping out of the sky blurring out the mountain in the background and leaving everything silent – it was incredibly peaceful.   To me this image is more about how we are passing through life and the things we think permanent in our lives are short lived, at least on a geologic time scale.   Once we are gone as people whatever remains after us will not stay for long and the traces of existence will soon be erased.
