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?

DRUMS, Rhythms and Relationships

Dylan Shares His Delight

He's young; he's becoming a musician; he's filled with memories that he loves to share. Meet Dylan. I did. Once again, I discovered that everyone has a story to share and Dylan was no different. I had seen him earlier in the day outside in the sun at the Bluegrass festival at Albert Hall, in Waretown,NJ. He was wearing a black and white cowboy shirt and a knit cap that sat close to his hear. It was a strange combination of clothes and wearing apparel. Later, during the break, as the sun was streaming into the entrance area of the hall, here he was again, but with a giant spanking brand new black cowboy hat. Now the outfit was complete. The best way to get to know someone is to start with a compliment and that I did. I love that shirt. I bet you have a story about it?!? It seems that it was a Vintage 70s shirt that had belonged to his dad. The real beauty is the memories it evoked for Dylan because his dad had died when he was 5 and this was a piece of him that he could hold on to! His dad was a guitar player and Dylan has been learning to play so he could follow in his footsteps. He was shy and we didn't get to talk much, but I was so grateful for the pieces that he did offer me. He was definitely a bright spot in my day.
