Left Behind

As I was looking through the archives searching for an image for a friend, I got distracted. (big surprise there…)

I found hundreds of images that have never been printed, shared,  or enjoyed by anyone other than me. I’m such a sensitive person, that in truth, I felt badly for them. I mean, how can they just be ignored?

I’ll tell you how. And this is not uncommon among photographers, but I share minimally. How on Earth could I show you ALL of my images? And the reality is, I wouldn’t want to show them all to anyone nor would anyone want to see them all. That’s okay.

Here’s the thing though, almost 100% of the time when I look back at the images I have shared, I see a series of dull, mundane, and predictable images. Now, in all fairness, I don’t actually think my photos are bad necessarily, I just think I need to be more willing to share more powerful images that ignite curiosity.

Additionally, as I was gathering a portfolio to submit for CMPro (which was accepted – YAY!!!!), I was made aware of the abundance of images I have with just one subject. It was undeniably saturated with portraits of just one person, namely one of my children in them. I thought, “Am I missing something? Do I only take images with one person in them? Am I incapable of capturing relationships and connections?” It kind of freaked me out, until I went through my archives and realized that it isn’t that I only take images of one person, it’s just that those are the ones I share. Weird huh? I thought so.

I don’t know why I hesitate to share some of my less expected work with more than one subject, but today I felt compelled to do so. So, here are a couple of  images that were left behind and I’m so sorry for that.

And thank you to my friends and family who put up with me always taking photos… of everything… all the time. 🙂
