Consider this a progress report of sorts. I’m taking a yearlong photo community class with Laura Valenti called “Gathering Light.” This video is in response to her August challenge to get out and shoot every day for five days then choose five photos to post-process and present. This is called 5 x 5. You’ll recognize a lot of these photos from the last week if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram. Obviously, getting out to shoot every day is not exactly an issue for me, but I like to play along.

  • Stunning! As a viewer, I needed at least twice the time to actually take in each shot. Maybe that’s an age thing: I know a lot of visual art now employs sequences of quickly flashed images to convey a more subjective message. Me, I just wanted more time with each shot to see the light you gathered. Your photos are worth the time!

  • Each image is a world of its own, taken out of a larger context, but now providing a new territory within which the eye explores & sees things that might have been missed in the larger picture… Thank you for your eye & camera lens & for sharing the intimacy of your vision…
