Meg, over at House Notes, had asked to see some of my art. I have very mixed feelings about sharing my photographs. Even though I love creating art, I never felt that my work was good enough or worthy of sharing. Throughout my school years, I devoted so much time and energy into trying to find what makes me want to create. I don’t think I ever found that reason I searched so long for. I know, it’s complicated.
What I want to show you are photographs that I love, but not because I think they are good pictures. Many of them give me feelings that I never want to lose.

San Francisco series:
My birdie, Sweet Pea, that had passed away a few years ago. We always had fun with him at Easter.
Clint and his father visiting his grandfather's grave in Clincho, VA. This trip meant a lot to me. It was the first time I met his extended family, who live in a very small town in the hills. Clint's grandfather passed away a month after we started dating.
The rest of the pictures I have to show you are hanging on the walls our home. They are all taken with film, instead of digital.

First signs of Spring!
The rest below, are pictures of the very first game at Comerica Park, where the Detroit Tigers play. The stadium wasn't even fully complete and it was freakin freezing that day! Many of you may not know, but last year, Tiger Stadium was torn down. Growing up, my father use to take us to Tiger games during the day and read the paper while we ran around the stands. So, you could say Tiger Stadium was a second home and a great past time. These pictures hang in Clint's game room.
As you can see, I LOVE black and white photography. There is just something that I feel tells my story better in black and white. I hope you enjoyed them!
