I was in that quiet place today, you know the place where time doesn't matter. You just feel and see everything around you, but yet are so focused that distractions aren't a distraction.
One of the reason I like photography is it allows me to get into that place. I also prefer to shoot photographs alone, because of this need to be in that quiet place (I just realized this). I will, however, join groups of photographers for an outing, but I mostly like to watch and ask questions.
I was in this special place twice today, once at work while working on a programming challenge, and then in the garden while I photographed a few flowers (OK, maybe more than a few). The photography walk was interesting as the gardens were busier than normal, but I hardly noticed any of the people. I was so intent on looking for shapes and colors (and light) that I barely noticed.
Have you done anything, like photography, that has allowed you to get into the zone where time just flows?
