thoughts…

Thanks for joining me on this journey of photography and life! Because isn’t that what photography is? Capturing life…the good, the bad, the funny, the so-called mundane…

I hope this blog will chronicle some of that in my life, mostly through my photographs.

I enjoy exploring the world through my photography.  Seeing the beauty in the not-so-beautiful.  Because there is beauty all around us.  Sometimes it’s obvious, sometimes you just have to look a little harder.   Sometimes this isn’t easy to do.  I know.  Just recently I was in a place where I was overwhelmed and stressed, and I found it very hard to photograph there.  My heart wasn’t in it.  Which shows me that photography is not just a mechanical activity of aperture and shutter speed (which I already knew), but it is much deeper.  It is an activity of the heart.  Of perceiving a place or a person, and expressing your thoughts and feelings about that place or person through the use of the camera.  That is a higher calling than just shooting snapshots, which can be done, stressed or not.   And that is my goal, my desire.  To produce images that are of the heart and that move people.

That is and will be my journey.
