A very Happy Monday morning to you all and Happy Presidents Day. What a beautiful weekend we had to get out and share. I had the pleasure of getting invited to hear the Huntsville Symphony play Wagner Saturday evening and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed my first trip.
It was such a glorious day on Saturday that I actually spent the day walking around downtown, once again, with camera in hand. As I began my photographic journey the word Juxtaposition (the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect) began to strike a cord and I began to think just how could I portray the city with that thought in mind, capturing the old next to the new. It did not take long for the idea and vision to take hold. Our city is blessed with the contrast and it was up to me to see just how I would be at fulfilling my mission.
As I walked the streets I thought back to my previous tours of the city and began to look for those contrasting elements that not only provided a glimpse of the old and the new but also provided a variety of color and textures. As I pointed out in a recent blog, as an artist you are hopefully blessed with the ability to look at things in a different way and your art becomes an extension of that blessing and vision. It became a very interesting journey for me to take a day trip looking at the city with this very unique singular perspective as my challenge.
The one thing that I continually tell people is that I do believe I am truly blessed to have found my passion in life (or it found me) and that I feel very fortunate to be able to continue on this visual journey. I wake up everyday looking to tackle what ever photographic task is put before me and if not then I try to find something that will challenge me. It was an extremely satisfying visual experience to walk the streets of Huntsville and take a look at the ever-changing landscape of the city with a different and unique perspective. I hope you – ENJOY!
