Dealing with the Weeds….

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Sometimes in life you are dealt weeds.  I know, this requires a little explanation…. I like to think that weeds are a necessary part of life.  They allow us to recognize and fully appreciate the beautiful things in life…beautiful people, beautiful weather, beautiful scenery, beautiful pictures, flowers, nature, etc…  There is a ying and yang for every situation and the yang is as necessary for total awareness as the ying is.  Good/Evil, Bold/Shy, Beautiful/Ugly, opposites that are necessary to understand each concept.  Without good you cannot understand evil, you cannot be bold if you don’t know shy and the same holds true for beauty and ugliness.  With that said… sometimes, you are dealt weeds!  It could be a really bad picture or you could get the best picture ever.  There is something to be said for the everyday ordinary things in life that teach us the upside of living, the little things that help us appreciate the beauty that surrounds us daily.  When composing pictures next time out, take the time to shoot a few weeds and see what you come up with.

Art has always been a part of my life, ever since I can remember I have been creating art. I would make gifts to share with others at Christmas and then I found drawing, or maybe God introduced me to that particular art form, but it was an all consuming thing during my youth. After I had kids, it seemed that art didn't fit into my world in the same way. But the desire was always there and it eventually took over my life again...becoming a need more than a desire. So, photography enters my life. Artists have a unique way of seeing the world, it is their vision that creates the art not the medium they choose to express it in. No two artists will see the same thing in the exact same way. It is the most beautiful form of flattery to have someone see your art and tell you it is beautiful to them. It connects you on such an intimate level. I want to share my creative vision with everyone that wants to look upon it with appreciation.
