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.

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.
