Sometimes a photograph moves me.
You know how it goes you’re minding your own business and bamm, a photograph reaches out and messes with your mind. It provokes new thoughts, sometimes crashing old ones together like poetry does. No matter what, you can’t shake it, or unshake it.
I love it when that happens.
That I had the ability to actually create a photograph like that has motivated me to attempt it, for many years. It’s my version of panning for gold. I find it thrilling to switch on my mind, soul, and feet and actively look for something, anything, in my immediate environment that could have that kind of affect on someone else.
And every now and then, it clicks.*
So I present these photographs for your consideration, in search of reactions, sparks, feedback, thoughts, insights … whatever.
See if anything stirs. Enjoy. Write.
