aspen glow

A photographer, I am —

Extremely aware of light.

Aware —

Of the way light enters a scene and mixes with the shapes in the shot to create a statement in that moment.  A mood perhaps.  Maybe even a feeling.

If I am lucky.

And I know I am —

But a careful observer in the process.  Know that my power lies, not in controlling the light —

But in collaborating with it.

The light is the source.   The leader.  The creator.

I pay attention and —

I follow.

(I write today at 10,000 feet:   I write in the spaces between the rivers of gold reflecting the September light.)

My art flows from the patterns & paths of my lived experience which ⏤ like yours ⏤ are at once deeply personal and entirely universal.
