photos, paintings & nature

i just finished another wonderful photography course with my favorite teacher, joy sussman.  one of the coolest things i have learned in joy's classes has been to view art in order to learn new ways to view the world and photograph it.  the other day i visited the houston museum of fine arts to see an exhibit of monet's work along the seine river, and i was surprised to find alot of inspiration and even parallels to my own work.

getting there


letting go

i need these things so very world has become incredibly noisy lately.  literally.  all day, every day, nothing but big-city human noise - mostly construction.  at home, at work, driving in-between.  everywhere i turn there is construction; even at the park!  ALL the parks!  i'm all for progress, but we never seem to "get there".  i dream of just sitting in silence, hearing the birds and the wind in the trees.  our man-made noise seems to drown out all of nature, and i'm longing to feel part of the whole again. 

i'm currently taking a wonderful photography class, and i'm reminded that the act of photographing the world around me helps me experience the underlying calm...when i slow down to see, prepare and execute the shot, i re-join the slower-moving world that lies beneath our self-conjured sound & fury.

and the low-key rhythm i find there fits and feels so right.
