And for all these years I thought it was just photography…
We all are on our own unique journey in this world. All of us traveling together and yet apart, moving towards something. What is that something? For some it is wealth. For others fame. It is a moving target that is always beyond our reach.
It’s been a while since I have posted any photos let alone take them. Photography is an old friend that has put food on the table and provided a roof over my family’s heads for many years. It has also been something that has given me an inner peace over the years.
I was talking a few days ago with a very good fine artist. A painter who is very successful but not because she is seeking fame and fortune but because painting puts her in a special place.
Over the years I have noticed but not paid much attention to where my creativity comes from. Recently I started reading about meditation and the soul. Now before you stop reading and think that you are going to get a sermon, you aren’t. I have never been preachy and never will be. Remember we are all on our own journeys in this life.
When people have asked me how I get the ideas for this or that I am always at a loss because I had never given it much thought at all. After having listened to an audiobook on the soul and consciousness it started to come together for me.
Many artists over the years have when asked where their art comes from have said that they don’t know, that it isn’t them that creates it. It just flows out of them and that is what I am coming to find.
These photos have no special message in them for the viewer. What they are is a window into a part of me that I don’t yet understand. That part I hope to one day get closer to.
Your travels to take photos are not just physical but spiritual whether you know it or not.
We all are going somewhere.
