As a healing tool to overcome personal distress, I am used to immersing myself in exploring woods and mountains. But instead of focus on discovering new places, I wander over and over the same ones. As much they appear more and more familiar, once photographed, yet they start to look odd and mysterious. According to the Oxford dictionary, Off the Mark means, A long way from an intended target. Even if natural subjects are portrayed, their shapes and geometries playfully suggest an inward journey, which becomes, at times, unusual and ironic.
