This past week I was up at the Maine Media College MFA retreat auditing the course. It was a great experience that changed my whole way of looking at my photography. As a photojournalist only a few feature photographs are classified in my mind as art so making the distinction between just a photograph and art (my art) was a transition I needed to make. I am now prepared to explore my photographic art to a whole new level and am willing to make the commitment to an MFA program. At this point in my career I need to go to another level with my photography and discover more about myself. It will be an interesting journey.
The shot above was made in Bermuda with my G15. While in Bermuda I started to look at things differently and we walked by this scene every morning while we were there. I had to lay down on the pavement in the driveway to make this shot but it was worth it. I have a number of shots that I like from this trip but this has to be one of my favorite shots.
