Week 36 – #Part of a Face or Head



Martin Luther King Memorial, Washington DC

I attended college in the Washington DC area.  Last year I went to my unnamed college reunion and decided to spend a day visiting some of the memorials that were not built when I lived in the DC area.  I found the Martin Luther King memorial to be particularly inspiring.  The memorial itself is quite simple but it is the simplicity that evokes the emotion.   The statue of MLK sits in the center of the memorial and is an overpowering reminder of how far we have come with  the civil rights movement in this country.    One does to need to see his entire face to understand the power of his message.

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.
