Do you ever see words in photographs? I often joke when looking at a book or magazine that I am just looking at the pretty pictures. That is true, however ironically my experience when I am viewing photographs especially ones that INSPIRE, is an arrival of words that present themselves to me. This is part of my process in my editing of my work or experiencing any art that uplifts or inspires me.
While this TODDLER is simply laying in the grass and from all accounts just looking at his hand. I EXPERIENCE and SEE such BEAUTY in the simple act of him BEING.
Words instantly start to line up as if they were guests attending a gala event. Words like, IMAGINATION, WONDERMENT, BLISS, INFINITE POSSIBILITIES, MARVEL, CONTENTMENT and PEACE.
When I see words of this caliber showing up I liken it to powdered sugar. It’s the finishing touch for me in discerning which images are the best.
My hope for my work is that people will experience the sweetness of their own powdered sugar and have the tiniest bit SMILING on the tip of their noses after viewing my photographs.
So do you like powdered sugar on your photographs?
I do! It’s the sweetest signature I can leave behind.
