The track I walk is often used by a shepherd as well but I never made the link, until now.

I was thinking about my own photos and the connection between my drawings when I saw these strings of wool hanging on the acorn bush.

I think art is to complex to design. You always have to leave the door open for intuitive “accidents”. Most of the time I only see the photo properly when I’m home. The camera sees more than I do and I feel more than the camera does. And together you find the right combination of feeling and seeing.
