A Life to Live

Sometimes I arrive just when God’s ready to have someone click the shutter.

You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world. Oprah
 
Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.  Mark Ribound
 
We take pictures as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone. Unknown
 
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving, what you have caught on film that is captured forever…..It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.  Aaron Siskind

What a beautiful world we live in. We all have that in common. Natural beauty is everywhere, but sometimes we are not connected until we see a picture, taken just right, that makes it really come into focus and be admired. My passion is to make a connection between the lens and your soul. Photography is my passion.
My photography passion began when my Father handed me his old Ricohflex box camera when I was 12.  It was love at first sight. I still have it. My hand was never empty of a camera since.

I am a native Floridian. I am so lucky to call it home. I was born in Orlando BF (before Disney). My family moved to the Winter Park area when I was very young. Central Florida was so simple and quaint at that time. I wandered the streets barefoot with my friends, never worrying that something bad could ever happen. My Mom used to pick the sand-spurs out of my feet. I still go barefoot. It grounds me to earth and connects me to nature.
I have extensively explored Florida and its diverse beauty. So much to see and so little time. I would love for you to join me in my travels through the images I have taken. I wish you could hear the sounds, smell the fragrance and feel the breath of it. But for now we must be content with exploring with our eyes and only imagine the rest.
Now for Melody’s first post.
