I've never been a duck and hide kinda girl. But I sure do know better than to sit in the line of fire. And I definitely am smart enough to run when I see chaos, especially when its not my own.
I know how to keep my world peaceful. I know that my peace is more important than ego.
I know that when I keep quiet, keep patience close, I open the door to something even better.
I know that when someone tells you more than once they aren't happy, they mean it. If you don't hear them, you're just plain stupid or you need a hearing device.
I know that the people we say we love need to see it in action. Love shouldn't be hard work, that doesn't mean we should be lazy about it. And if the love itself is hard work, it ain't love. Real love, the good and healthy kind of love, it's easy like Sunday morning...
I know that you truly do get what you give. There's comfort in that. . You made the choices that got you where you are. If you don't like where you're landing, well... just remember you bought the plane ticket.
I know that sometimes it is a little too late. Move on, move forward I say.
I know that we are all here to learn. But women my age who still have their head in a bucket, irritate the hell out of me, I guess because we are given the gift of being a woman, strong and intuitive, [and it IS a gift] when I see it wasted and littered with excuses... I find there is no excuse for you.
I know that I am truly blessed. I'm not talking about a big house,or expensive things. I'm talking about the people in my life. You know who you are. You matter to me.
You are the best gift the universe could give me for having done a few things right in this world.
I'm happy. I'm grateful. I'm loved. and I got easy like Sunday morning...
Photography for me, has always been about telling the story,
one I do without words. In any story there is a beginning a middle
and an end. There are those rare moments when you get all three
in one shot. And you know it when you shoot it.
You just do, you can feel it.
Then there are stories that demand more.
Pieces of the whole. It's a phrase I use often.
It's the only way I know how to define my work.
They say we are more than the sum of our parts,
philosophical speaking I suppose that's true.
But...when it comes to telling a story,
it has everything to do with the parts.
It doesn't matter if it's a wedding, or a lake shot, or a food image.
It's still all about the details, and the details are in the details.
All I want to do is tell the story.
say everything I cannot.
They not only tell the subjects story,
they also tell my own.
