Back to walking

Well, my solo show is hanging at Edison, classes are starting to wind down and the weather is finally warmer. So it is back to shooting for me, seeing what is out there since the last walk. I am actually thinking of visiting a new place - at least it is new for me. The Urban Park in Troy (when I drove through it) looked like a flat piece of ground without any exciting plants or trees, However, I've been told that sculpture and a hidden pond actually can be found in the park. So I believe I will dig out a fresh memory card and visit the site this weekend.

In addition, my goal is to figure out how to get images on this site.

I actually have over 30 images hung in the Art Gallery at Edison. Now that the hustle is over I think it looks OK.
I do need to thank my best friend, Patty; a former student and now a friend, Sherri; and Chris, a current student for their hours of help the day the show was hung.

A need for peace, a place to lose myself in the beauty of my surroundings. The stress of the world I live in requires visiting these places whenever I can find the time. Using the concept of rephotography, I visit my places over and over throughout the seasons. I have finally allowed myself to go back to my roots in photography and see the simple beauty and peace in nature. To take the first step in sharing this wonderment with others.

To allow myself to walk in the beauty and see, feel, and hear the calming presence of the wind, the water, the sun. To feel the gritty textures of the sand, the dirt, the grass. To know that I will find the peace no matter the season. Something is always around the next bend in the path.

What will it be??
