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

Super Sunday Adventures!!

Nope, not talking about Super Bowl Sunday but Super Sunday!  Our friend Pete Cogan has been telling us he plays on Sunday in northern Wilmington, DE at a place called the Bellefonte Cafe.  "Why don't you guys come on down?"  Today was the day.  Photoschmoozer and buddy Bill were looking for a different kind of adventure - good food, good music and a great atmosphere.  Here we found it all!!  I read about Donna on the Bellefonte cafe blog  When I saw their menu, I knew it was the place to be - fine natural and creative foods.  In their full sized bathroom - complete with cast iron tub - I read an article about Donna - how she had been a music promoter and just got tired of the fast life.  She needed to find something to slow down...and here she is.  Sunday brunch is from 12-3 - get there when they open because it fills up quickly.  The other reason - slow cooking of a sort - Donna takes her time to personally and carefully prepare the food.  It's worth the wait...

and while you are waiting - the other piece of the adventure - is the music you will experience with Betty and the Bullet - yep that's Betty behind the bass - and check out her shoes - a dream shot for Photoschmoozer who has been photographing shoes for lots of years!  The group is talented - the music has a lively rhythm - and the time just passes with enjoyment.  What more can I say except that we will be back.  I think there is more to the Bellefonte neighborhood than we could explore yesterday.

Here's Pete - waiting for the time to jump in on the right songs with his harmonica playing.  Watching him is a treat - he closes his eyes and feels the music and puts his heart and soul into his playing.

This was how we chose to spend out Super Sunday - still home to watch some of the Super Bowl and then Downton Abbey - that's is what has hooked us for the past four weeks!  It's a grown-up Brit soap opera - well done!!
