One of the most important things in my life, as a young man, was something said in a Norman Vincent Peale article, “Peace I give to you, may the Peace of God be upon you.” Today I’m more aware than ever of the qualities of Peace and Stillness – the strength of images.

When asked about what it takes to make an image that speaks, I can only reflect on my own journey as we are all different and come from different experiences.

It was one morning after pondering things, that I came to the realization that images that speak are all around and that I only need to be there and receptive to experience that, then photography was simple. Just press the shutter release button.

It’s very difficult to replicate the magic and mysteries of nature. But it is possible with the right frame of mind to feel that Element.

It can’t be rushed. If it isn’t there yet one must be patient, and positive. It will come. As one grows, either through experience or study, or a combination of both, discernment will come.

keep-buildingThis morning I received this message, from the folks that do WordPress.

Others often can’t really see, nor understand our vision.

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.”
Norman Vincent Peale
