When the air is so transparent… || Green Lake, Seattle
It’s this time of the year again. It’s the time when the air is so transparent and new you attempt inhale it with full chest, but never get enough. It’s the time of the year when everything is reborn, renewed, restored and revitalized. It’s the time of the year when your heart swell and emotions hit you hard. Spring.
I’ve been wanting to visit Green Lake with my camera in hands specifically this time of the year. I dreamed of the day. We go there often, every week. Sometimes several times a week. I love to walk around the lake. Sometimes it’s busy as a beehive and other times not so much, but it is never empty. People come to appreciate this place: they run, they walk, they talk, they sit on the grass or benches. Couples love the benches carefully placed at the most intimate spots.
This place is beautiful any season. Every time we go, I see something different and every time I wish I had my camera with me (I always have iPhone, but it’s not the same. Yes, it’s better than nothing, but not the same.) This time I brought it and glad I did. Some trees are showing new, brightly colored, but still small leaves and some are already blooming. Ah, the air…. it’s so new, so fresh and so crisp, your lungs are expanding with the capacity they couldn’t before during those long winter days on the couch. It’s time to go outside and take full advantage of the renewed air and nature. It’s so beautiful!
I just hope I was able to capture the feel, the mood, and the atmosphere of the day.
