BE STILL...and SEE Photography

Reflecting on who I am...what is important to me...and the gifts I offer the world, I have reorganized this PhotoSchmoozer blog into separate pages for your viewing. I am about so much...people - relationships - drums and rhythms and especially photography...and I realize that although separate, they are all so INTEGRATED into the Whole of who I am!! It's a very peaceful thought and I am thankful for the intuitive gift to see the connections and the relationships. Enjoy the journey through the blog...and WELCOME.
Contemplative photography is about being totally present and seeing exactly what is before you, without filters or judgment. It is about seeing with your heart.Doesn't everyone see what is before them? Not really. You may see a candle on a table. Do you also see the shadows it creates? Or the reflections that the light casts on it? Or it's underlying shape and form?

Always Look About and SEE!!

"When I go unprogrammed, 'eyes only' and open to experience, the world expands as if taking a deep breath. There is more to see - or perhaps I am able now to see it. It is a Zen-like openness, a meditative awareness. I can accept everything - or very nearly - because I am willing to. I can see what is just beyong my peripheral vision. Cathy Johnson, ON BECOMING LOST: A NATURALIST'S SEARCH FOR MEANING.
Yesterday, we were out on a simple quest to find a little folding stool for photo adventures (sometimes the knees need some help to get down to see at close to ground level). On the way home, we "happened" to look up and see spots of bright color in an unusally blue and beautiful sky. We came upon a group of sky divers and spent the afternoon watching and photographing.
