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

Grounds for Sculpture: Peaceful Contemplation!! or???


There's a new sculpture by Seward Johnson at Grounds for Sculpture - at first glance it is a small unimposing building with some faces on the sides.  When you walk in, there is a black couch - Dr. Freud is home?, a comfortable brown leather chair and some contrasting views to give you pause.  The two collages that I have created give you an idea of what can go on in the mind - anything from frenzied anxiety to total peace and contemplation.  If I had my choice, it would be the still one - the peaceful thinker.  To be honest, there are days when that is not always present and the other part of the persona emerges.  Look at them both and decide where you are...and where you would choose to be if you could?!? 

How I would choose to be, all things being peaceful and the day being restful.

 How I sometimes feel when I don't take deep breaths and instead allow the day and/or the situation to get away from me!!
