Hello & welcome to this space I have created, allowing myself to reach out to you. Today I found the courage to share with you, a small facet of my soul. I have discovered a love of photography, which for the past two years I have been pursuing, picking up tips & learning as I go. There is so much more to discover. It is my desire to explore my creative abilities, while developing a stronger desire to grow in love towards myself and others. I feel as these changes occur, so will my photography. It has been, and still is, a journey of excitement, adventure, self doubt, fear, laughter, disappointment, new people, frustration,and discovery. When I feel disconnected from myself and the world around me, I often grab my camera and go out into the stillness and quite of nature to be with God. It is here that I feel my soul in it's rawest condition. Being in this vulnerable space is where I connect to the awesomeness, beauty and Truth of life. I enjoy coming back with images of my surroundings. During the editing and recreating process, I get excited as my photos emerge. I never really have a finished 'look' in my mind, often it just creates itself. I am still finding it difficult to connect and express myself with others, & to develop trusting, honest relationships. Sometimes I find it hard to acknowledge and accept what I feel. At times I feel there is no clarity in my life. Often there are no words...... perhaps words aren't even necessary. I like to think of my soul as a diamond in the rough, special & unique, yet in need of a little polishing to bring out its true beauty. With humility, a true desire to know myself and receiving God's Love, my soul has the potential to become like a brilliant sparkling cut diamond. I believe there are many infinite facets to our souls. Maybe one is where our passions reside.... waiting to be unveiled.
