The first annual city art show is nearly upon us. After much long deliberation I choose four photographs to submit. There is a particular reason and theme behind what will be displayed. Each one invokes strong emotional reaction for me. I did not pick them because I thought they would amaze my viewing audience but rather that each one has a story. The image captures only a glimpse into a particular moment but it is a memory full of emotion that is etched into my subconscious mind forever. I hope you will enjoy and view critically as I have about that thought provoking moment. Where I was when I took the photo? What I was thinking and feeling as i firmly pressed down on the camera button? What does this say to me as a viewer other than the superficial beauty? Art which translates to love and passion has influenced my life.
