a Photographic Journey by Meryl


morning stroll
with my pet
under control
in step

making plans
in high gear

historic place
winter hibiscus
slower pace

  1. Love this phantom Meryl…. the image is crisp and clear and then the phantom dog-walker seems to disappear, as you state in your lovely poem. I appreciate the ending – how you re-emerge into a a new place — slower pace … where you can be whole again, perhaps ~ xo

    • Ahhh…you are so perceptive…I recently realized that my Phamtoms have to do with my desire to melt into a slower, more peaceful existence underneath my commentary on too much technology…did you notice that I made a new Phantoms page too?

      • yes – i did notice and read…and so agree that we need to make space for the peace in our fast-paced world. Of course I’m forced into retreat-mode most of the time now… just cannot survive otherwise, but I think everyone can benefit from finding that sacred space to be still. ~ Your phantom series does a wonderful job of exemplifying this Meryl 🙂

  2. I’m really enjoying your phantom photos.. I haven’t tried to do this with my camera, is it difficult??

    • Thanks Barbara, it is rather tricky…requires a very steady hand (no tripod) and split second timing as well as previsualization…
