“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are” –e.e. Cummings
Each week we share a piece of us on our photographic journey. We have titled this series, “Courage to Grow”. We hope that our own soul searching will inspire similar introspection in our readers and that together we can make our best art and live our best lives.

Can you see that colour and light are the fuels of my passion?
Can you see that I stop by the side of the road to capture the beauty that catches my eye?
Can you see that I am more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it?
Can you see that I am imperfect and that I make mistakes?
Can you see that I am not your competition?
Can you see that I am grateful when you pause to write a comment or like a photo?
Can you see that I try hard to return the love and support that I receive?
Can you see the artist?
Can you see the artist that is slowly blooming?
Can you see that not every image is a work of art but I keep shooting for the images that stir my soul?
Can you see they are markers on my photography journey?
Can you see that I am on a journey, one that I know will never end?
