World Rowing Championship, Sarasota FL Benderson Park

Tomorrow begins the 2017 World Rowing Championships at Benderson Park in Sarasota FL.  I decided this afternoon might present a great opportunity to take a few photos before the competition began tomorrow when access might be limited.   Although there wasn’t a lot of activity I was able to get a few shots of some teams getting in a last minute practice.  This is the 8th week of the 52 Week Photo Challenge and I am fulfilling the number “8” challenge.

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.
