can't explain why these images go together. They are a slow arc in the change of how i'm seeing things. For so long I've lived in the beautiful watercolor world of backlighting. It's defined me for so long that I'm struggling to find my voice and certainly how to find my new way to process images. It takes me a while to know if I like something. But every so often I'll find a shot and know it's just right for me. I'm still looking for words to explain it. I'm not sure how so many ideas can fit into one category but it seems to be really honest for me. I wonder if I'm categorizing everything that isn't backlighting into one thing. But I know it's more than that. There's a certain feeling I get in my gut when I stumble upon a little gem and I feel so grateful immediately - a quiet happiness spreads and it makes me want to stay out side and shoot all day and never do paper work again. I think in so many ways my love affair with photography is just beginning.
