CONNECTIONS BLOG

CONNECTIONS
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

Brooklyn

We recently spent a few days in Brooklyn, prepping for a shoot. It was fun exploring a new part of New York. Seeing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge reminded me of sailing under it as a kid in the 60's on our way to Australia. What excitement there was at the start of that journey! Heading out to the ocean, leaving New York behind us, on the way to a new life in the wilds of Australia! All that I saw was the open ocean ahead, representing unlimited possibilities! I think that very moment in my life may have something to do with my love of the horizon and ocean today, and all the metaphors they produce. 4494_DCP_2023LowSat4494_DCP_2018LowSat2014_08_03_AC8P1735IMG_2907LowSat4494_DCP_2024LowSat

Spring In Pennsylvania

Spring In Pennsylvania

We were shooting in Pennsylvania recently and had a chance to sneak a walk in one afternoon through some country lanes. The trees were just starting to bud. the sun was warm and I remembered how wonderful spring fever is! The moment when nature is waking up, the warmth of the sun starts to seep through the grips of Winter. The feeling that anything is now possible and beauty wins the day.
