Inspiration from Paradise
Through the years, these images helped cement memories of specific times and places, but much more than that, they opened me up to different ways of viewing the world, both inner and outer. Connecting my “mind’s eye” memory with mental and emotional intersections enables me to bring my photography to another dimension.
Of late, I’ve had my camera trained on the breathtaking vistas and majestic wildlife of Paradise Valley, Montana, the rugged coastline south of Boston, as well as novel sights in foreign lands. And, I’m finding that these images are bringing passages and quotes to the surface of my mind. I often find these words give perfect expression to the emotions that the images evoke. Marrying the images with the quotes deepens their meaning and provides a fruitful starting point for my mediation and journaling.
Finding ways to connect creatively with our inner self, to explore resilience, grit, courage, empowerment, awe, and grace, strengthens us and allows for expanding our sense of self.
I’ve chosen to share them with you here so that they may do the same for you.
I encourage you to come back and visit this section often, as I’m feeling inspired to keep up this new endeavor.
