shots for you to find the stories

  I started this section after Kim Klassens discussion about still shots that tell stories, yet I wasn't really staging still shots  according to Kim's  suggestions.  It was more of a this photo or combination of photos speaks to me... does it to you? This morning upon waking, the time I always get a bunch of ideas that I often implement, I thought I would make this section my own too. That I would continue to combine photos that appealed to me and see if the story is visible to you. 

 I'm going to do them more like the one I did for May 27 this year. And perhaps this will let me use more of my travel photos. SO you don't have to scroll back to take a look I will re post the photo of May 27 and then a second for today. Hope this tickles your fancy enough to follow along and maybe even send me a comment with your ideas of a story that the photo tells you.

I decided the title of this section would be better explained by the title." photos and their stories" rather than   still life stories. I have been reading recently about how photos tell their own stories sometimes with words but often without words. I am always intrigued with the notion of not using words as I am naturally a words person so this concept has taken a while to  find its way inside the work that I do.  Yes it is similar to still life story but I want to include more than one shot in a story almost like a picture book.  So far I can't figure out just how to publish a book format here so today I tried making a slideshow of just 4 photos and have tried to up load that for your pleasure but.... that hasn't worked either so stay tuned once again while I attempt in the next few days to sort out this new challenge.


I found a wonderful quote that perfectly fits my state of mind today, from Diane Ackerman in her book Dawn Light.  She says, "  Loving your fate without trying to fix it,.... is easier to phrase than to feel.  ....  I find it, this state of grace hard to reach.  Like trying to frame problems as invitations, not challenges.  " 


 This is another one of those invitations. When I'd much rather just write and post more of what has become easy.  Sigh... until I figure it out, I remain hopeful that you will keep returning.
