Day 4 ~ Brooklyn Window

Had an eye opening breakfast this morning with two wonderful dads that I have known for many years.

The subject on all our minds was the attainment of a different sort of happiness in our lives. Our hearts and minds reaching for something just for ourselves.

Thanks for the inspiration to post this shot!

Day 3 ~ Hole Story

Having some fun hunting holes on my walks these spring days.
Rebirth, desire, fun... The strength, continuity of the circle.
Terri, my friend finds it amusing.

Day 2 ~ Wound

Day two! Thanks so much for all the support!

So many questions as to how to continue...Should a new photo be taken everyday? Well that's the plan - but may have to break that rule once in a while. Should there be some sort of theme or cohesion to the photos? Don't know the answer to that question yet. Maybe by the end of this project, a theme will be revealed.

My good friend, Brian and I went out this morning to take some shots - always an engaging conversationalist and a photography mentor. Perfect walk - thanks Brian!

The wound in my heart is striving to heal - but the crack is deep and the blood still so fresh. Move on ... move on ... is the mantra I hear.

Self Portrait

As a kid, I understood that both my father and sister possessed the “artistic touch”. For them, a creative project was rendered with an ease and facility I could only fantasize about. I was more comfortable watching, listening, blending into the background to absorb the world around me. Although I enjoyed taking family pictures of our adventures and travels, I preferred to be behind the lens rather than in front of the lens. This is still the case, but through photography this past year, I have ventured into a soul searching self-realization journey.

Recently, my eye is drawn to nature within the urban environment and the humanistic details they provide. The anthropomorphic qualities in nature within/and in conjunction with my urban environment reveal themselves as feelings of sadness, elation and desire.

On the eve of the anniversary of my sister’s death, I launch this blog to continue an artistic dialogue in the hopes of partially filling the void I feel within each and every day without my father and sister by my side.

365 days of pictures - join me. Comments are welcome...
