a story of their own

As you probably imagine, there is a story that goes along with each of these images.

But what I love about film is the ability to for each of these images to stand on their own.  To tell a story of their own.  About the time and place, what was going on, and what I was feeling when I clicked the shutter.  I strive to capture that essence every time I pick up my camera.

And in case you are wondering – that’s my grandfather in the framed picture in the last photo.  I’m finally setting up my office/studio space and getting to surround myself with the things that I love (a tour coming soon).

    Yes, that is a good and succinct description of what makes film so special. Mindful picture-taking combined with the inherent beauty of film. You say you strive to capture the essence every time you pick up the camera – you certainly succeed.

    I look forward to seeing the tour!ReplyCancel

    I completely agree A! Sometimes I do want to write a lengthy backstory with each photo, but if the photo is good enough if speaks for itself. These are so lovely. Love your little succulents too.ReplyCancel
