I am a diarist of ordinary moments that move me. I gravitate towards black and white photography but still celebrate color. I love the candid capture but respect the power of the choreographed moment. I study the rules of phos+graphis but am compelled periodically to ignore them.
Inspiration: Tulips are one of my favorite flowers (topped only by Peonies and orchids). I know that I should have rendered the photo in color (they are a pale yellow tinged with red) but black and white makes them so dramatic looking!
Inspiration: Remember when I said I was stuck on the bridge last week? Here another photo from that mini-photo shoot. On this side of the bridge lies Chinatown with a view of the Empire State building in the distance.
Inspiration: I love Spring. It's like a getting a present . . . a box filled with things you haven't seen or tasted in months. New grass, new flowers, trees with new leaves, people filling the parks and the streets, new fashions in store windows . . . love it.
Inspiration: Today is the end of the most beautiful weekend all year. The weather was incredible: not too cool, not too warm. A perfect day to wonder around with my camera - something I haven't done in ages - and something that I've really missed doing.
Inspiration: I have been a busy busy bee lately . . . albeit a busy bee who's been grossly negligent about posting on my blog! When I neglect my blog, I feel like I am abandoning a good friend and I feel terrible! In any event, I've been working on a number of projects and flying around the place. Here are a few photos from one of my flights to (or from) New York.
Inspiration: All week long, weather people told us about another Lionesque Noreaster that would slam New York. Yet every morning I woke up to clean streets. I lugged my snow boots to work all week having been previously caught in a storm with only heels to get me home. Well . . . on Friday morning we finally saw snow. But by Friday at lunch time, it was gone!
