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

Norman Taylor: Exceptional Artist

First you see the face...and then the smile...and then you hear the voice. Norman Taylor is a singer/songwriter, acoustic performer. His style is connected to country blues, as well as influences from country, 70s rock, soul and gospel. The audience is magically drawn in to the sounds of his deep voice and the music that comes from his resophonic guitar! Lovely. Just lovely!! Last week at the Arts and Music Festival in Pitman was no different. He performed at the Bus Stop Music Cafe and then we connected as we were walking down the street!!
Then I thought back to a special evening    
months ago at the Bus Stop when Norm was performing.  Of course, PhotoSchmoozer had her camera right there and was sitting front and center to watch the performance.  What fascinated me that night besides the music was the hands playing the guitar - the picks, the slide and the variety of ways I could see his hands playing the instrument.  I hope that you can catch him sometime soon and hear, really hear what we so enjoy!!
