Welcome!

Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

Palm Springs Museum Event.

I asked Jen to write something to go along with these photos of mine I’ve posted from our evening last night.
Here is what she wrote:
“What is modern photography? With not only technology changing quickly every day, photography is unique in that how people view their visual world changes just as quickly and at the same ratio as the medium of photography itself. Growing up in a family where knowing that form follows function was just as important as knowing the Presidents, it was so nice to revisit the Palm Springs art museum last night to hear a lecture by Los Angeles gallery owner, Paul Kopeikin. My grandfather, along with Stew Williams, designed the museum. As I walked through the museum last night with our hosts, Barbara and Bernie, childhood memories came back of playing through the museum and sliding down rails, of listening to my grandfather light up when I asked him to explain the significance of anything from the Dead Sea to Le Corbusier.”

Thanks Jen.

Now outside the Museum the lights on Jen's boots was too hard to resist.
