Return to Blog: The Journey

Hope all is well. The summer is upon us here in Florida. Hot and humid days with strong afternoon thunder storms. The swamps and wetlands are beginning to fill back up with water and slowly the many birds and other wildlife are returning.


Haven't been out much lately to shoot. My schedule has been pretty full with the video production work and with family. I now have a new grandson. That makes for three girls and one boy. All of them are great blessings. Life is good and the creative spirit is strong.


I have been doing a lot of thinking and reading lately on the subjects of spirit as it relates to creativity. It is and has always been a goal of mine that my photography would reveal the spirit of the subjects that present themselves to me. This desire to reveal depth of character is always my firat thought as I begin a project or a single image series. Not sure if I'm really succesful, but I try hard to share with you what I experience when I'm persuing my art.


Let me leave you with the words of just one of the many phhotographs that I admire and who inspire me.


The language that photography has is a formal language. Any photographer is doing something formal. If it's formal, then it must be an aesthetic way to communicate. - Sebastiao Salgado


Take care my friends and may your life be adundant with blessings
