Oh! I See You

When the sun comes out in Seattle,
the city looks different. 
Sometimes I don’t recognize it. 
I’m busy turning my back to the sun,
capturing the shadows,
us, human beings,
in relation to
the direct light.

I believe there are people in life we will always get drawn back to. I met Olivia 3 years ago on a Nat Geo Expedition in London and she serendipitously reached out because she was in town. It was great to re-connect with her, I find it lovely when you can meet up with someone for the first time in a while and the silences aren't awkward, the conversation works through it's flowing existence, and we're able to be our SELVES in which ever form they take at the time.

I'm photographing my world in black and white these days and I'm living. in. the. dark. room. I included an image of the negatives Olivia now exists in. I'm excited to start exploring a concentration of something, (unsure of what it will be... yet), for the final in my photo class. I'm intrigued by the way I will watch this world take form. As always, I'm attracted to human faces but might branch out and center myself around an idea that's a little more unfamiliar to expand my comfort zone.

Today a couple thoughts were brought up in my photo class;
All this time we're spending shooting, developing, & printing... (or what have you, in any field you may be in), is how you're going to spend your time; your life. If this doesn't seem like a good fit, re-evaluate your passion, your mission, and most importantly, understand that where you invest your time, you invest your life.
