Well I did get out and I shot for my show which will be next year in July at the Centennial Gallery. I am exploring different places of worship. I found that every time I went out of the country I was drawn to the cathedrals, small village churches and temples. I questioned myself why I don't do this in Nashville. We have so many of them. To quote mother of another photographer I have recently met, "there must be a lot of sinners in the Nashville. There is a church on every corner". Boy do I know it and it can be off putting but I do get satisfaction and comfort being in them. Even though it is not the only place I get a connection to the spiritual part of me I seem to get it in most the old Catholic churches-childhood memories I suppose contribute to the feeling of ease, security and comfort. In doing this project I want to allow myself the time to enjoy, relax, and connect. Who knows. My best work may come of it.
Today I did some visiting with my dear friend Donna. She is the "wind beneath my wings" when I need comforting, connection, hope and love. Thank you Donna.
Here is one of her most special contributions to our world.

It is two days straight with hardly a break from this computer working on upgrading old imagery for a new site I hope to have up and out shortly. It is grim sometimes and sometimes exciting. I would love to be outside shooting now, but I have so many images that have never seen the light of day and must post them in some way. So I am taking a break to play and share with anyone interested about my latest images that has me glad I am a photographer. It was on a job for Readers Digest in Michigan where I met a beautiful little girl and her grandfather. This was a very innocent moment. The light was wonderful and the little girl was amazing.
I love working with children before the age of 6. They are their most authentic.
