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

Talk to Everyone...You Never Know!!

Once upon a time oh a few years back, Photoschmoozer was at the Uptown Pitman Arts and Music Festival - sitting at the Bus Stop Music Cafe and listening to the music of Pine Wolf and the Pack.  They were fantastic, but what really attracted my attention was the sax player.  I just felt connected to his energy - aside from the fact that he blew a great horn (is that a good way to put it??)  Over the years, we have connected and reconnected at the Bus Stop for various music events.  Then a few months back, Larry Geiger shared that he had just been hired as the new Executive Director of Main Street Woodbury. Great for him and what a find for Woodbury.  If anyone could work to make them grow stronger, I had faith that Larry could make that happen.  Last month, as Uptown Pitman Farmer's Market began to gear up for the 2012 season, we thought about what could make us grow.  Larry came right to my mind - hey, Woodbury has a Farm Market and it is on Friday - so what if we created a consortium of Gloucester County Farm Markets and worked together to build the success for all of us.  What a win-win.  Today, Larry came to the Bus Stop and we all talked for hours - walking away with a plan to share joint advertising and even consider offering vendors a special 'twofer' if they signed up for both of our markets.  Once again - listen to Photoschmoozer - talk to everyone around because you never know what you have to learn or teach or share!!  You can be sure there will be more Larry stories as time goes on.  WOW!!!
