    Where do you find "peace"?

    I find peace in my car, either driving, or driving somewhere nice and just sitting there. I don't do yoga, I don't do meditation, I don't need to go somewhere really quiet, I just need my car.

    Sometimes it's good to just escape from everything! People, work, finances and all the stuff that comes with generally "living"!

    I'm sure some of you feel going out somewhere alone with your camera or someone you care about is much the same. Right?








    Where do you find peace? Share a photo!

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.

    at home, with no computer on, no music, no tv. With the deck doors open and the sounds of the birds and wildlife. Love just lying on the lounge and listening. Even better if it is raining. The next one would be walking on a beach, alone, or with my dogs.

    Depends on the pieces.

    I find pieces of shredded lolly wrappers in my sons pockets .. after I wash them!

    .. I find pieces of food scraps under my daughter's seat at the dining table .. after I step on them


    You're lucky .. you seem to have a nice peaceful car to be at peace.

    You (nor I nor anyone else) would definitely find no peace in my heap of junk .. yet I've driven it into the ground.

    Apart from a pseudo convoluted form of peace in my car too ... I tend to find peace looking through an optical viewfinder

    I find the most peaceful time for me is when im alone on the beach at sunset or sunrise, or in a rain forest just after it rains, i guess it does really matter where you find it as long as you do find it.
    Comments and Criticisms are always appreciated.

    Thank You:

    John

    I'm at peace 90% of the time, so it doesn't really matter where I am. (I'm also quite boring)

    now that you asked and got Mongo to think about it................

    the outback and bush generally and also when Mongo is on his potter's wheel for hours and cannot remember a single thing he must have been thinking about during that time - its like meditation

    I find peace sitting out on the rotunda in my back yard, listening to the birds, watching them at the birdbath... occasionally looking across at Mt Sturgeon and thinking how lucky I am to be alive, and to be out here...

    I found peace about 12 years ago after being diagnosed with sever stress. I found an old home in the north western Vic desert area and retired there. Over the years with the help of my photography the stress disappeared and my health improved and now I just enjoy the moment and what happens - happens.
    Cheers
    Keith.

    I head out of town for the bush.

    I cherish spots where there is no sign of man's presence, and am attracted to stands of Casuarinas because of the unbelievably peaceful sound of the breeze in their leaves.

    I find peace at home alone just before hubby comes home from work.

    I don't do pottery now but like Mongo I felt at peace at my potter's wheel creating a piece of useful earthenware from a lump of mud.

    I find peace when I go out birding by myself.

    I find peace whenever I am alone.....I really enjoy my own company.

    Generally anywhere when I'm not at work, doing work or thinking about work.

    Driving home on a near empty HWY listening to music on a Friday afternoon is quite peaceful. Laying in bed during a storm or a cold morning. Spending an afternoon at the shooting range with no one else. I find all of these rather peaceful and relaxing.

    Interesting to see that many of us find peace when we are alone.

    I am the same. I find peace when I am by myself. I find peace in the car exploring. I find peace in an empty house
