Scene & Story - July 2017

"We seldom get what we want without struggle and loss. We do not become who we want to become - the best versions of ourselves - without passing through the fire."                              
                                                                                      ~ David duChemin

I am constantly drawn back to this photograph. The contrast of light and dark, the depth. The delicateness of the spider webs, the heaviness of the shadows around the edges. A lot like life, there is goodness there, but we must look for it, and it will often be surrounded by struggles, darkness, and loss.

  8. Those words of one of my favorite photographers and yours ring so true. Your image has such a beautiful atmosphere - I've found that's very often the atmosphere that draws me into your photos. I love how you captured shadows and light - a beautiful demonstration of the quote.

  13. Such a beautiful image, so full of motion and life. I am sorry to have missed Scene & Story the past couple of months, but things are beginning to slow down as fall approaches, and I will be a regular once more.
