Sunday Night Thoughts…

I’m sitting here catching up on blogs, thinking about/missing Jenna (she’s been out of town the past week), and reflecting on everything we have going on.  I’m not sure where this is headed, but I thought I’d jot a few things down.

People always ask me how I got into photography, and my answer is usually something along the lines of Well, when you love something, it’s sort of hard not to. And I do love it.  (Although it often makes me feel like a little kid with a really expensive toy.)  Never-the-less, through photography I have been extremely blessed – blessed personally, in my ability to bless others, and through the people I have been able to meet and share a little slice of life with.  One group in particular – She Dances.

I have a burning desire to truly make a difference, to be a part of something larger than myself .  There is so much going on outside my bubble, so much life going on that’s so much more significant than me.  But it’s easy to forget that.  I mentioned my friends at She Dances…they’re an amazing groups of folks trying to put a dent in the world, in the wrong, of human trafficking.  I’ve yet to do anything ‘public’ for them, but I hope/pray to venture with them to Honduras to help tell their story through the pictures I can take.  Photography can be an amazingly powerful tool, and I hope for the opportunity to share.

And so here I sit… Reflecting, thinking about the things to come, excited for the unknown possibilities that await.  I don’t know what they all look like, but I’m forever grateful for you who I’ve had the privilege to work with so far.

    That’s great Matt! I hope it works out. People need to see those sorts of things for them to be real, I think.ReplyCancel
