Seeing in Black & White

“I think it’s because it was an emotional story, and emotions come through much stronger in black and white. Color is distracting in a way, it pleases the eye but it doesn’t necessarily reach the heart.” Kim Hunter I’ve been actively uploading my photos in my Instagram account for the last two weeks. I am…

Embracing Negative

I’ve seen it all and read it all. This thing about positivity. Positive thoughts. Positive feelings. Positive influence. Positive vibes. Positive crowd. You get my point?

Messy Grace

Blue skies. Snow covered trees. Empty benches. Sunrises. Sunsets. These are a few of my favorite things. I was going to complain about a few things today, but then, I was reminded that most of the things that I want to complain about…a lot of people would loved to have.. But before you judge me…

Go Where Your Heart Is

It’s been a while since I’ve been out with my camera. In fact, I have not been proactive in promoting whatever I started. I can’t tell you exactly why, all I know, at some point in my life, I don’t feel like doing photography for a business anymore. When I first started, I’m doing it…
