I mentioned in my last post that I’m photographing from a more intuitive place right now. So my heart nearly stopped when I saw these first two pictures. The first one is the picture that Thomas took of his sister. The second one is the picture that Sadie Ellen took of her brother. Both of them were taken at fstop 2.8, which means a shallow depth of field. I was helping them hold the camera but had no idea if a person was even in the frame when they decided to press the shutter button, much less did I have any role in composing the picture or making sure it was focused. And voila. I gasped. Because they both captured each other so truly.
And a few others from our trip to Asheville. The next set is my dear little Sadie Ellen, watching her shadow as she danced to her own music.
“Don’t you hear it? she asked & I shook my head no & then she started to dance & suddenly there was music everywhere & it went on for a very long time & when I finally found words all I could say was thank you.” (quotation from www.storypeople.com)
And a few from our hike in Montreat.
