all good things are wild and free

In the past three weeks I’ve been featured three times on RedBubble for some photography I did whilst in the United States in 2010… I mostly do it for fun, but it has been lovely to sell a few prints and be creative recently.

“What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”  Jack Kerouac, Big Sur, California, California

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” John Muir, Yosemite National Park

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”  Henry David Thoreau, Yosemite National Park, California

“I sit here in the upper circle surrounded by copper and gold, and smile with joy under my fly net as all the light, glory and quivering brightness passes slowly and freely before my eyes. Nothing happier than this. I shout and laugh at my immense wealth, all free and without responsibility. Who could steal this from me? No one. Oh that I could roll some up – as at present.” Arthur Streeton, Mt French, Queensland

      Yeah I tried to get themed ones. Kerouac wrote a book called Big Sur (based on Big Sur where we went), John Muir was one of the founding people involved in the Yosemite National Park and wrote extensively about Yosemite, Thoreau lived in the woods, and Arthur Streeton was writing about the Australian bushland… 🙂
