I got (back) into Photography for several reasons, two of which I will mention here.
One – I had fallen in love with the idea of capturing and preserving moments in time when I was in middle school. It became one of the first passions I truly had. But it was fleeting – it would come and go – depending on other things that may have been going on in my life.
Second – as I grew as a person, I found I needed a creative output. Something, outside of my profession, to give me an outlet for expression and creation. Over the past couple of years, this need for a creative outlet flourished, and with it, my interest was rekindled like it never had been before.
What does that have to do with “The Barn” you may ask. Simple. This post is a quick peek at the growth I have had over these last two years. I took this image in Feb 2010. I knew I liked the composition and the subject, but I lacked the knowledge, skill and experience to take it where I really wanted to.
Like anything else in life, this is a journey. One of experiments, education and learning. This growth is necessary, for without it, I believe we don’t just stagnate, but we regress. My intent is to continue to capture and preserve this growth, and perhaps share some of that knowledge with others along the way.
