When I was young, my family did a LOT of camping in the summer. Almost every weekend, in fact, and usually at least one week-long camping trip.
I used to love it. I grew up in western Washington, which is full of rain forests and cedar forests, darkly shaded paths and hiking trails, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. Camping was always an adventure. Not only did I get to spend as much time as I wanted barefoot, wild and free and enjoying nature... but I also got to play with fire.
When I came across today's feature shop, it brought me back and made me smile all at the same time.
Nathaniel Luckhurst's photography is beautiful. Gorgeous, actually. And he has a lot of pieces in his shop that make it very easy for me to reminisce about my camping and hiking adventures.
In fact, l like the picture posted just to the left in this blogpost, many of them are perfect resurrections of my memories as many, many of my camping trips and hiking paths looked just like many of the forest land photographs he has to share in his shop.
Since moving to Canada, I haven't really gone camping. I suppose I could blame it on growing up, but I think the fact of the matter is that I never actually realized how much work was involved in all those camping trips back when I was a kid. The preparation (and supplies) needed is phenomenal!
Still, with spring soon slipping into summer and memories stirred by Nathaniel Luckhurst's beautiful prints, I feel the urge. I might just have to take a weekend to enjoy a much-missed-and-longed-for taste of nature again.
