wish you were here | 2016

Fifty two images shared each week with other photographers from all over the world who became friends after participating in one of Deb Schwedhelm's online or in person workshops. This is the second year of sharing a weekly virtual postcard which are unplanned and unthemed. None of us know what others will submit yet the images connect as if we had planned them in advance. For my part, while I generally have a strong sense of what scene or moment I'd like to share, one thing I was mindful of was connecting my images to each other while still offering an impression of a moment that I wished I could share with others. In that regard, I made a few changes - swapped an image or two out here and there because my eyes at the end of the year were clearer than they were in the midst. This was my favorite year to date in finding a stride and clear pathway forward ... and sharing this with others is a gift.
