The idea for creating this blog originated from two different events and from being under the influence. One event arose out of frustration of not having time to focus on my art. My day job was keeping me very busy, so I decided to photograph when I had some time, and that meant during my commute to and from work while I was sitting in traffic. At first, it was a creative distraction. Then I started to realize that I was transforming the mundane, those things we see while driving that we take for granted, into something of interest.
As a cohesive catalog of images arose, the work itself became an exercise in seeing things differently. And by re-framing this constraint of time, I was experiencing creative freedom
The other was a recent talk that I gave “When Your Muse is MIA” at the Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council. Finally, from being under the influence of another photographer, John Craig – who has also blogged and from the perspective of sharing to help others, I wanted to do the same.
