"I Create" with I See the Moon Photography
Her Website ~ I See the Moon
"i create pictures, snapshots of moments, and i hope a little bit of art mixed with a whole lot of love.
i love the old, the worn, the forgotten. i love how new flowers gently embrace old bark on trees in the spring, i love photographing children playing among forgotten old barns. i love the way wind moves fallen petals in the spring, long grass in the summer, grains of sand on empty beaches in the winter. i love the light right before a midwestern storm. i love old weathered docks against soft turquoise water, i love the romance of loons calling at dusk. i love the little truths of childhood and all that my children have given me.
i dream about a long life. i dream about all the moments i hope to be a a part of. i dream about the places i hope to go. i dream of being remembered."
Martha is one of my absolute favorite photographers and her answers touched my heart. And (I hope you won't mind, Martha) I wanted to share a small portion of a message Martha left me on Flickr. at the end of her interview. Here's what she said:
"some of my answers to the i create statements left me frustrated, some of them left me crying. 3 simple little questions, 3 very difficult answers! i finally just answered them as i closed my eyes and wrote. it's crazy you know...i think everyone should take a moment to try and answer those questions. they beautifully put things back into perspective." :)
Soooo, my question to YOU is how would you complete these 3 statements?
Please feel free to share your answers in the comments section! xo
