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

Sunset Across the River - the City Lights Up!!

There is a story to everything.  My friends say I am a storyteller and that is the truth!  Every experience is a wonderful story in the book of life!  Now on lovely evening, Bill and I like to go out and find settings to watch and photograph the sunset.  Tonight, we decided on Wigging Park in Camden, NJ, just across the river fro Philadelphia - see the skyline??  Little did we know that there would be a baseball game at Campbell field AND a concert right in the same area.  Parking?!?  Well, I stopped to ask a policeman what we could do.  He directed us to talk to the guys at the parking lot and say we were just there for the sunset/photo ops.  We luck.  I had turned around and as I was driving, the lights were flashing in my rear view mirror.  The policeman was taking care of us.  He told the security guy to let us park right there on the street and that he was to watch our car!  Two hours later, after the sun had set in it often beautiful way, we headed back to the car - and it patiently waited for us!

This sailboat - on first glance looking like a big Chinese junk, was coming up the river.  We kept taking pictures of it on its journey and this is the one I have chosen to share.  Just a group of people out for a sail on a lovely late summer's evening.  Not bad huh to see the beautiful buildings of the city behind them!!
