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?

A Tree Grows in Pitman!!

Imagine this - driving down one of the major thorofares, Holly Avenue, in your very own hometown of Pitman, NJ (well, 40 years now!) and seeing a tree growing on the sidewalk in front of one of the houses.  Okay you say - no big deal - trees grow in front of houses all the time BUT are they make of glass bottles that say IKEA and Made in Poland??  Screech.  Let's figure out how to get the best vantage point for this and of course, a few pictures.  Zoomed around the block and parked facing it.  Just walked across the street and snapped away.  Of course, I asked Bill to pose since it could offer a perspective of size of the tree.  It was definitely as tall as we were!!  It was fun to see and just as much fun to get close to each of the colors and see right through them.  I wonder how many people have driven by and never seen this - or seen it and not given it a curious passing thought.  Not PhotoSchmoozer.    Anything out of the ordinary is worth stopping for and checking it out.  Life is an adventure and everyday there are new sights to see!  Don't ever lose that childlike curiosity.  It's what connects you with your spirit and your soul and keeps you young and thriving.
