Evolution...


Over the past year my photographic style and sensibilities have changed pretty dramatically. I no longer look for the sharpest shot, the highly polished image. Instead, I've gravitated toward evocativeness and, well, blurriness. Perhaps it's because I find I'm relating more and more to the world through all the shades of gray, learning to allow, and have become more open to new ideas. I don't know, but I'm totally loving the use of toycams, pinholes (to a lesser extent) and capturing a mood.

Not only in my photographic output, however, have I seen changes. Through this all, I believe I've become more allowing of myself, gained understanding of what truly resides within, and am totally thrilled to be experiencing me, just as I am. Strange how it sometimes takes half a lifetime to reach this place...but then again, maybe that's just normal.

I feel truly blessed to have met some fine individuals who have influenced these changes and to have had the support and encouragement of my family as well.
