Outdoors: Recreational Karma

Recreate: to restore, give fresh life, to recreate memories, to restore mentally or physically.

Whether it is photography, hiking, camping, fishing or some other outdoor pursuit, a large component is the restorative quality of the outing. We savor the revitalization of the mind, the body, the spirit. We attempt to draw upon the past memories of positivity and add it to the present to come away stronger and renewed. Add to it smiles, happiness, memories, rituals and it all just is that much better. Throw in some planning, anticipation and excitement and it just does not get much better for self, for relationships of family and loved ones. Bliss

Photography: ‘Someday, I Need to Stop’ (Palestine Lodge)

How many years had I driven by a building in SE Portland. Each and every time, I offered up the identical mental conversation:

” I need to photograph that front…Someday, I need to stop and photograph that building…Darn, I don’t have my camera…Geeze, I do have my camera, but I need to get to…………Ok, next time you have to stop!”

Finally, the other afternoon, I did stop. I took the photographs. I tried to be artsy and creative. Then I noticed it was a Free Masons structure. I decided to do some homework. I found it had been registered, in 2005, in the National Register of Historic Places. I found more in the document that was quite informative as to the history of the structure, the Masons occupying it, the architectural structure and design (Egyptian) terminology and more. This is one of the fascinating aspects of photography; history. It adds such depth to the image. Surely, some of you travel the world and gaze upon man’s designs from many centuries ago. This beautiful building, called the Palestine Building from 1925, added a nice dash of history for this procrastinating photographer.
