one knows exactly where one is"
With landscape design I'm inspired by the colors I see, the textures I feel and the spaces that I walk through. With photography I'm inspired by so many things such as my fellow photographers, finding beauty in unexpected places and those special storytelling moments. I'm constantly inspired by my children and how they see the world around them.
The above photo was taken at a local nature preserve on a beautiful "un-January" like day. My daughter was gathering items along our walk such as acorns, pine needles, and pebbles and then running over to the bridge to throw them into the water below to see if they would sink or float. It became a fun game for the two of us as she guessed whether the Blue Jay feather that she found would sink to the bottom or float gracefully along the top. I felt inspired to take this storytelling photo knowing that I would remember this particular moment in time when I forgot everything else that was going on around me and took time to play sink or float with my daughter.
