“If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.” ~Joseph Campbell --- These words could not be truer for me.
Finding my own path in the world of photography has been an interesting journey that I don't expect to change. I have an interest in many things in life but photography has always been a constant. After some years of not taking pictures I felt the pull to get back into it only more seriously. Let's just say finding my own path makes me feel like I can't focus on any one thing. I'm drawn to an idea or a color or a moment that will disappear never to return. I'm often drawn into many directions all at the same time. I'd have to say my path has lots of side stops to explore. Where it all leads, I don't know but I'm beginning to see glimpses of some constants like abstract expressionism emerging. So, for now, I'm heading in that direction. ;-)
You are welcome to follow along as I learn new things and try to find unique moments that will become my photo of the day.
"I think the thing that I’ve really learned the most is that you have to define what success is for you, and don’t be pursuing other people’s dreams, or other people’s visions, really make your art your own and do it for whatever will bring you the most fulfillment." - Cole Thompson
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It is about finding something interesting in an ordinary place. I have found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” - Elliott Erwitt
