The last couple of months I went through a bout with Depression after failing health and immense stress factors. It amazes me that my camera and photos has become a very close friend. Photos are stories - each trying to say something about a specific moment in time. A Moment Captured to be remembered forever. And - when we look at these photo pictures - each of us see a different story, and that, because of who we are. Sometimes, when really low in depression, a photography magazine or just a visit to the Camera shop, but above all, a shoot in my home studio, brought some light into my darkened soul and somehow my spirit was set free again. Light is just something so unique and beautiful. It paints many a picture, but when light paints the soul - it brings new perspective, it somehow, brings a peace nothing else will give.
Now, as I've overcome the constant depression, but with my health slipping, when I look through the lens, I always see life in a different format - I see color with shadows and I see shadows with color. Do I still enjoy photography? Yes I do! Photography is to Create with Light a Form of Art that someone will look at and say - Life is happening. With all its realities and facts, life is worth living. My Lens told me so...............
