I’ve been chasing light and seeing the world as framed moments for as long as I can remember. With a camera in my hand something special always happens; it’s like magic right in front of my eyes and in my heart. Exploring and creating brings something to life inside of me that makes me feel a little more alive, a little more connected, a little more appreciative, and a little more inspired.
In 2019 I challenged myself to take a single photo everyday with my “real camera” (Canon 5D Mark IV). In 2020 I starting going on picture-taking dates with myself – little adventures with the singular purpose of seeing, exploring, and creating. When portrait photography was my career, I rarely took pictures for fun. Now my art is simply for my enjoyment, and I plan to continue going on photo adventures in 2021.
This afternoon I found a cool old truck, met very photogenic ducks, watched the sunset while sitting next to a beautiful fountain, and met a supper cute couple walking their dog who asked me to take their photo. We visited for a few minutes and I was reminded that even in this season of social distancing it’s still possible to have meaningful interactions with others.
