It’s been a difficult year for me. There’s lots of changes in my life, and as is true for many of us, I don’t deal well with changes. So, I’ve been “blue” and withdrawn. But in all that there are some constants. One constant is my little black dog (my own version of the LBD), Maggie Mae. She is always there, and always cares. The second constant is my need to be creative, and to share that creativity with others. It may be that lost little girl in me, still seeking approval, or it can simply be that I find beauty and want to share it.
Thanks to a dear friend, and “darling companion”, Derek, I have been more mindful of my photography. I can remember using a small Kodak camera when I was a girl, and doing my best with it’s limited capabilities to get “artsy” photos. I would make my friends pose in abandoned buildings and photograph them. Today it would be called all very “emo”.
More recently I’ve discovered I don’t photograph people all that well, but I do photograph places, flowers, things, rather well. And that’s the focus of what I do. It is the focus of the Facebook page I’ve started, http://www.facebook.com.RuthAnnKarnowski I hope you’ll stop by for a visit and browse, let me know what you think, share with friends, and come along with me on this interesting journey.
I’ll start by sharing with you, one of my favorite pictures. “Darling Companion” says the internet is all about cute cats. Well, I don’t have a photo of a cute cat, but I do have a photo of a little black dog, who reminds me always, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey.
