Exploring the Streets – Columbus OH 4.28.18

Last weekend I went to a tour headed by the Young Preservationists Society and learned lots of more info on this fair midwest city of Columbus. Of course it was also a great opportunity to take some shots in some usual and unique locations – from the State House to an old historic building during construction.

Depth of Field: MetroParks at the MAC

Frame

I had no idea that last June, when I took a serendipitous drive to a park to take some shots of the sunset, that it would change the course of my work this year. On a whim I submitted this photograph to a juried exhibition late last year and this January I found out that my photograph was selected. Ecstatic that I got in, I also immediately started to take stock of what the heck I was going to do with all these photographs that I take and maybe it just felt like the right time to go full tilt.

Over the years I haven’t done anything with them. Mostly out of a lack of confidence, a lack of time or money to invest, or personal derailments, I’ve never really valued my art. And maybe all it took was one photograph to be discovered or to change my perspective.

Sometimes my passion is writing, sometimes it’s making paper, sometimes it’s crafts, sometimes it’s working with animals, but over the years I have always come back to photography. And there must be a reason for that.

Glacier Ridge Metro Park

It’s always great to get a park all to yourself.  The other night I was chasing the sunset at Glacier Ridge Park in Dublin and the sky was constantly changing. The sunset itself was not particularly amazing that night, but to see it change in the matter of minutes was a sweet treat. I know that the collection of shots look like different nights but it was all from one night at dusk.
