I have been encouraged by some of you slices to post some of my pictures up here. As most of you know I spent some time studying photography in college and even though I don't have a ton of time for it right now it is definitely still one of my favorite things. Most people would probably think that spending hours shooting, editing, or in a dark room would be torture. For me, its just the opposite. In college I used to spend countless hours in the dark room. I could put my ipod on and just let the world fade away.
Since college, I have been hesitant to share any of my work with anyone except my closest friends. By showing my photos to people I feel like I am leaving myself vulnerable and exposed. Letting people into a world that is intimately mine can be painful but it can also bring healing. I guess thats the crazy thing about art, it can stir up emotions and feelings that you might otherwise ignore and not talk about.
Anyway, here they are. I purposely have not put captions on them. Let your mind wander a bit and form your own thoughts and feelings about whats going on. Sometimes the best thing about art is its ability to break free of the conformity that we are so used to in our lives and allow for your own emotions to filter in.
