52 Weeks of Susan's Life

Week 33 – #29 Shot at 9AM

4 Comments

My husband and I have lived in Florida for 17 years. When we initially came to Sarasota from Philadelphia I was pretty adamant about not living in a gated community or a golfing community.  We found a charming neighborhood in downtown Sarasota and lived there for 16 years in 3 different homes within a house of each other. We went from 2500 Sq feet to 4000 Sq feet and then back to 2500 Sq feet.  I’ve been itching to “go condo” for several years but my husband was just not ready. Finally last year, I convinced him and we did what we hope will be our final downsizing and move. We found a charming complex in the University Park area.  I walk to the gym most mornings and was waiting for the perfect light to take this photo.  About a month ago at 9AM, it was slightly overcast so I setup my camera and tripod and captured this charming view of our complex.

What inspires a photographer?  My journey began taking product photos for my business.  I had a company that provided fashionable headscarves to women and girls with medical hair loss. Photos needed to be updated constantly and the expense of a photographer led me to my first camera about 5 years ago.  I’ve since sold the company but my love for photography has continued to grow.   I’m constantly looking for new places, people, food, new colors – just about anything and everything appeals to me through my lens.   Suddenly light shapes, colors, textures, people, buildings, trees, flowers…. everything around me looks different when I start to see the world as a photographer. For me, an image captures more emotion than your native eye or a written word.  Lingering on images that I have taken and reliving the scene, person or thing is like reading my favorite story over and over again only with the benefit of a visual companion.  I love to study the light and the composition and see how I can tell the story through the lens.  Everyday objects can be exciting when I think of them as capturing a moment in time. Once I started to notice details I realized there was beauty all around me.   My photography allows me to share my perspective with others; it allows me to tell my story and for that I am grateful.  As the lens opens to capture an image, so do my eyes.
