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

Where Butterflies Bloom!!

When I saw the sign - WHERE BUTTERFLIES BLOOM - I was hooked.   When I walked inside, I stayed!!  I said Hi and shared that I was pulled in by the name of the shop and then Ron had stories to share!!  By now, you know Photoschmoozer's love of stories - the moments in time that are captured and make life full!!  I learned about Ron and his wife, their butterfly gardens and this shop as a happening in his retirement!  He loves the town of North East, MD and has some really fascinating and whimsical items to share.  I did find the 'perfect' Mother's Day present - a jangly bracelet filled with color.  Are you surprised??  Haven't had a photo op with it...yet...but will share when that happens.  I finally had to leave Ron though we could have talked and listened for a long time...the shop just filled up with customers and he needed to give them his attention!!  Go visit this little town - just a hop, skip and jump off of I95 when you are headed someplace - or better yet, make it a destination. There's a state part, the Cheseapeake Bay and friendly people!
