Photography some times feels like a fools errand–trying to capture infinity with a finite tool. The psyche of the landscape was so dynamic filled with unimaginable textures, unheard of colors, and irresistible contour. I picked up some earth sample and rubbed it on my hands, smelled it, and I melted for I felt molecularly connected.
Going through Lower Antelope feels like flowing through her hair–the waves, lines, and color.
Driving through New Mexico was curiously beautiful. During our trip we experienced wide range of weather from eerie ice storm to Martini dry weather. Of all the places we loved exploring Petroglyph National MonumentM in Albuquerque. The hike was seamless, quiet, and filled with petroglyphs!
In December of 2003 I saw a photo of people at a beach enjoying a campfire and each other’s company right as the sun was setting. The shot was framed by the suicide door opening of the brand new model called Honda Element. I was immediately captured by the photo. Then I found out it had an iPod hook up and polyurethane floor and that was it! Right then I had a connection with the Element and understood the power of photography.
There is something to be said about effort and its reward. Little over a month we decided to do a family photo shoot, but due to life and its sense of humor it almost did not happen. Then we finally got a exhale of a break. Saturday morning from eight to nine was the small sliver of time we both were able to agree and boom!
“Wow!” is the first word that come into my mind when thinking of the engagement photo shoot I did for Adam and Kim. They are both so energetic, funny, and engaging–and not to mention their dog who equally had a role. We did our shoot in Jarrettsville Maryland. Kim choose this place because she heard of the vast field of sunflowers and vast it was, more like an infinite ocean of sunflowers.
