The mood of springtime

The mood of springtime

How is everyone doing with the time change of springing forward? I am still adjusting and have been drinking more coffee than usual.

I spent some time in the studio doing some fun portraits over the weekend and when I was done I thought I would go afterwards to the flower store here in Woodinville. My favorite place to get inspired is wandering the big green house at Molbalks. The seasonal plants and home décor make me feel there is hope on the horizon for this girl.

When I see people and the moment, it’s a hard thing to do as far artistically document with a touch of photojournalism without interfering. Out of my comfort zone, but rising to the challenge with that famous quote by Robert Capa. “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough”.  Just a little food for thought.

Not with the intention of being a war or conflict photographer, I don’t know if I have the emotional ability to document the sad part of humanity, but rather focus on the beauty in front of me in plain sight.  Sometimes I day dream I’m a Magnum Photographer, but better yet, maybe a part of Magna Brava.
