When I began to take photographs it was because I was loosing my Mother to Alzheimer's disease and I desperately needed to see and feel happiness in some part of my life. A sense of normalcy, memory, safety, and hope. Searching for a way to find this in my life I purchased a point and shoot camera and began taking photographs, not good ones, but photographs none the less. I began to think that maybe if I had a better camera I would have better captures; alas, this was not to be. I wondered why and began to realize that I was shooting with my head and not my heart.

My Heart? How could I shoot with my heart? I began to “feel” the photographs I was taking and found that the captures began to shoot themselves. Now I don't look with my eyes I see with my heart through the camera lens and allow the captures to find themselves.

Lesson Learned: Allow your heart to lead when your head can not see past the end of your nose and things will work out.

      Wonderful captures looks like the old country pond needs a rope swing :-)

      I love this barn. I think you have photographed it before, but these shots are really very nice. I appreciate what you have written here, Karman.
