Recent Images April-May 2008

Random images taken with no rhyme or reason, but leave me full of wonder and delight. Photography for me has always been about introspection and communication from the deep recesses of my soul. I think I respond more emotionally to my subjects, rather than subjectively. I feel, more than I see, but there are also times where I feel something based on what I see. OK, I'm obviously confused.

I guess there is no explanation to the question I'm asked the most: Why do you photograph the things you do? The process of photography is one of self-discovery for me. The more I evolve and grow, the more I will have questions about myself and about my place at the table. That's great news for me, because this blog serves as a record of my life through photography. I often go back through the archives and amaze myself at the varied amount of worked I've produced and posted on this blog, each photo reminding me of both my physical and emotional state at the time. The photos on this blog show me that I'm growing and creating balance in my life, something I need to remind myself whenver I feel off. Life has that effect sometimes doesn't it?

Anyway, enough blabbering for now. I just had a moment, and thought I'd share along with the images below. Enjoy!
