Magic Happens

She started talking at three and hasn't stopped since...My grandchildren, my daughter, and my life with Tom are certainly my rai·son d’ê·tre!  However, photography is way up there on my list of things that bring me great enjoyment. If I were suddenly struck blind it would be devastating for me, because I would not be able to indulge my passion for this terrific art form.  When I look through my camera’s view finder I am always surprised. Although I may have looked at a particular scene many times, it is not unusual for me to suddenly see a great photograph develop. It was there all along. I just never noticed it before.

I am often drawn into a scene in search of a photograph before I am even sure what I am looking for. I put the camera to my eye and I search, and search, and sometimes there is nothing. Every now and then,  when the light and shadows meet at just the right places there pops out of the scene a photograph that yells out to me, hey! here I am! and BAM! magic happens.

Here are a few of my favorite shots.
