Photography: A little lesson on catching a passing storm.
Last Tuesday was a cold dark cloudy day. We here in Michigan have had such a beautiful spring, that to experience a dark cold day was not easy for me.
It does seem the minute you complain about those little things that you just don't like, something good happens to turn your mood around. It happened here! The nasty weather with these dark clouds moved out just in time for a great sunset.
You just have to keep looking for those little surprises.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
