Now, before I get all mushy, I have to let you know that next week, I'm going to hold another GIVEWAY on my little blog here... a "Save the Parks Giveaway," so make sure to come back & enter to win! But that's another post, today brings... gratitude.
As many of you know all too well, photographers do some annoying things from time to time... things directly related to being, innately, a photographer. That compulsion that gets the greatest shots, also commonly stops whatever was happening when "that moment" of perfect light/beauty occurred.
I think the real reason photography uses the term "stops" to describe such an integral part of the process is that it inserts STOPS in everything! You know... it interrupts things like taking a walk, admiring a sunset on the beach, having a conversation about your day, eating a meal, making a meal, enjoying a morning cup of coffee (or an evening glass of wine)... pretty much everything that happens in a day (well... almost everything)!
It takes someone very patient, understanding, and supportive to take all those "delay of game" moments in stride... someone who actually respects/understands/supports that unending pursuit of capturing beauty, not just tolerates it. And, even then, it takes a LOT of patience!
Does that wonderful and amazing soul really receive gratitude befitting the gift... the gift of Time? For ALL the times that gift is given?
So, this post is for those extroardinarily precious souls... the ones that enable our pursuits of passion and dreams, without guilt or consequence.
I love you Jhon, and I can't tell you in BIG enough words how *very grateful* I am for your support & acceptance of all my many "stops."
