a sunset


a friendly note



A sunset, a friendly note and nostalgia…all things I photographed because they inspired me in some way. I have been on this creative journey for some time and I am beginning to see a pattern in the pieces I select to photograph with my phone.

For instance, I love nature. The sunset, clouds, the color of the sky, the mountains around my house, flowers blooming, drives to the lake, drives over the mountains. I capture a glimpse or a moment as I pass by. Something that caught my eye in that brief moment that I want to savor and cherish for a long time gets added to my permanent inspiration file.

I have now taken 1445 images on instagram. It is becoming a body of work and a body of inspiration for future paintings, photos, and possibly writing. The work I am showing here is the best of the week, not necessarily because of the capture but because of the story behind the capture.

Remember, each time you take a photo, whether with your phone or camera it tells a story, don’t forget to tell it. Someday someone may thank you.
