I Am Grateful

I often tell the story of picking up photography back when my son was in middle school; of how photography was a hobby or activity that he and I could do together especially during his adolescent years.  I took the photography lessons to learn how to understand aperture, shutter speed, and film speed.  He – without the benefit of any lessons – intuitively knew the playful, experimental side of creating art.  And, together we spent many wonderful hours back in the 80’s exploring, experimenting, learning, and photographing.

For that I’m grateful.

As I ‘fast forward’ to 2013, I continue to be grateful for my photographic journey. Today I pause to reflect how my life has been enriched by a multitude of experiences and relationships…especially those of which could be traced back to the camera.

For photography friends and relationships; I am grateful.

For the beautiful memories captured and recorded; I am grateful.

For being able to more clearly see the beautiful world around me; I am grateful.

For the ability to see more deeply; I am grateful.

For opportunities to share my vision with others; I am grateful.  

As you read this post, whether you are a photographer or one who enjoys photographic art, I encourage you to briefly ponder how photography has enriched your life.

“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.”

― Joan Miró
