Gather

Gather. David Hayes, 2015.

Mood boards. I've see them all the time on IG and Tumblr. Full of wonderful crazy things that have significance for the creator...and perhaps those viewing them. Me...I take in the composition and most times droll over some of the included items...

From time to time I try to put together my own boards but never have liked what I come up with...probably because I'm not going about it the right way. Getting in the mood and all that...

The recent Be Still_52 prompt asked us to take a moment to settle into "intentions" and then take a walk in nature. To gather things during our walk that reflect said intentions. Then, use these with chosen props to create a board.

Long ago I stopped gathering things from nature feeling that it was best to leave everything right where it was. Low-impact visits. Take pictures instead. So...that's what I did...take pictures of the Little Miami River as I walked a portion of it. Those are in the middle of my board. The props...the wooden board and spoon are a surprise gift from Kyle Tueffer of Bole and Buck that arrived that same day, the other things just seemed to fit.
