Scottsdale Arizona and Why Photography Matters

Scottsdale Arizona April 2014




 I really liked the list in the link above but he missed a couple of things in the list, at least for me. The first is that the  process itself makes me an active observer.

The second is that sometimes when I go back through my image files I rediscover something and relive my adventure in Arizona all over again.  I'm not sure I agree with Number 4. What makes a person an artist goes way beyond clicking a button on a camera and taking a picture. I do like Number 5 in regards to depression. Photography was my lifesaver when I was fighting a deeply painful period in my life. Photography made me get out of the studio to explore and rediscover the joy of living and this amazing world.

Georgia O'Keefe and Abiquiu Village

church cross
Unfortunately visits to Georgia O'Keefe's home were fully booked BUT we did get to spend some time in Abiquiu Village.
It wasn't hard to see why O'Keefe fell in love with New Mexico.  The  landscape around the village and play of light and shadows are just enthralling.
