Guidelines and parameters help keep focus, maintain order, and provide comfort. I embrace them as part of my creative process.
Wonder is defined as "the feeling aroused by something strange and surprising". Challenged to find wonder in the everyday, I turned a lensless camera the parking lots I use on a daily basis - thus seeing them in a new light for the first time.
The Tolerant Mind is free to explore the absurd premise.....
Approximately 15 - 18 seconds on a beach in Uruguay - one thing does lead to another
We are all on our own voyage of discovery - finding our own purpose and method.
Inspired by the short story "Finding", by Joanne Dugan
Somehow we began and ended in a place we didn't know before
Trust was what we needed most to learn
Suddenly the voices started
Each thing became a guide
The world took a deep breath as it spoke,
And wisdom was born just by looking.

It happens all over the world -- Leaves grow on trees, turn beautiful colors, and then fall. And then, of course, it happens all over again.
In Bryant Park in December, it’s the part where the trees have dropped their leaves onto the sidewalk, stairs, and the little green tables and chairs that adorn the park.
Leaves grow up isolated to leaves from other trees.When a leaf falls, however, it is up to the fates where they land - who they interact with. Their connections to other leaves are tenuous at best.
Please note - this is NOT the story of the ten year old boy burning a leaf with the sun and a magnifying glass. It could have been, but it’s not.
This is a modern day romance.....
Can you peacefully and inconspicuously exist with a photographer?
