I came to photography and blogging late in my life, it became a salvation for me when my husband's dementia became the center of my life. I needed a creative distraction from the every-day plight of being his sole caretaker and I found a way to incorporate him into this new found love of photography. He was by my side as I began to explore my everyday surroundings thru the eyes of the camera. I even purchased a laptop computer so as I edited my photos I could also be by his side.
I have found thru photography a new way of thinking, a new way of seeing the world thru the eye of a lens. Since I began this journey almost 5 years ago, I have discovered a renewed love of nature, the landscape, the innocence of children, architecture, the seasons, the aging and life itself.
Here are just a few of the many that I have collected thru out these last 5 years. I have seen my photography change and grow, constantly learning new insights. My husband is no longer at home with me, leaving me more time for this process and eventho in reality Alzheimer's is a devastating disease, perhaps my love of photography may have never been discovered without it.
"It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera...they are made with the eye, heart and head." ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
Until next time....
