Fog Behind Pear Blossoms

Fog Behind Pear Blossoms

When I started to make jewelry, I often received questions about being done with photography.  My answer is always, no, I am not done with photography.

Photography is of a moment.  Sometimes you can make those moments, but it requires patience.  Patience is harder to come by when toting around three children. 

Speaking of which...I'll be right back.

Okay, I'm back...what were we talking about?  Oh yeah, three children.

This morning I woke up to fog.  Fog Behind Pear Blossoms and I was excited to take photographs.  If I was just me, I would have thrown on some close, grabbed my camera and headed out to catch the Puyallup river cloaked in fog and sunrise.  It is not that it is impossible, but I know by the time I got them all ready, my motivation would be waning.

I have not let go of photography, just as I have not let go of writing.  One day I will have my words published.  One day I will...

just a minute...I'll be right back.

Photography is a moment, and when that moment is gone, it doesn't repeat itself.  If you are not there with camera in hand, looking through the lens, it will pass you by, leaving you with nothing but regret and images close, but not magic.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
