My passion for photography has been reignited as of late. I think it's a combination of having a baby (I want to capture all her moments), starting this blog (I want to share amazing, unique images) as well as being exposed to so many stunningly gorgeous pics in blogland...Can I convey the essence of a person? an object? Can I capture light, emotion? A sense of time and...space?
What if I could look into the magic eye of my lens...and see...my great-grandmother's life? What would I see ?...(she was married at age 12... her husband was 34... it was arranged) Would I see...A little bit of prettiness captured in a stolen moment...away from cooking and cleaning and tending to children? Or...more?Are we that different-her and I (besides all the technology and stuff)...I will never know.
What if I could capture everyday moments and send them hurling through time and space to future generations-my great-grandchildren? I will never see them but...perhaps they could see me (and a little bit of themselves... in the process.)
What if I could peer through the magic eye and see pieces of mySELF that I never knew were there?
The camera is magic but we are the magicians. I am going to start this journey of photography and see where it leads...
