Our thoughts make us what we are

Visit with Jim – Abundance versus Scarcity

Happy Birthday Mary V. McCormick – Deeply grateful that we had the chance to chat tonight and celebrate your day. I love, love love creating these photographs.  Nor can I get enough of my weekend time isolated for the set up, experiment that unfolds and the photographs that are captured.  I thoroughly enjoy sharing them […]

Visit with Jim – Reframe, Refrain, Reorient

Today’s post walks through reframing and the power it has to change what we see and think.  Often with both the problem and solution lying right in front of us.   My atypical use of a camera is the reason why I enjoy this photographic artform.  I have a chance to break the rules and reframe […]

Visit with Jim – Purpose, Passion, Joy

Today’s post walks through a challenging weekend and expands far beyond that short timeframe.  Work was very busy with a lot to complete which in turn took me away from my photography.  The greater good was to be found in helping my team clear the work at hand.  This conflicted with my desire to have […]

Visit with Jim – Who, What and How

For today, my first thought was around what is your purpose.   Who needs help?  What do they they need? And How do would you help them?    We wrestle with these questions as our family works to deliver on our mission: “We will be on the breaking edge of abstract photography and bring forward new artwork […]

Visit with Jim – In the Moment and Flow of Creativity

A question that I have been pondering and wrestling with is: What is collective consciousness and what would the structure look like to support that?  I assume there needs to be a fabric or connection between us to allow the sharing of our consciousness across a distance in time or space.  Given we are bound […]

Visit with Jim – Gratitude

Today’s post is singularly focused on one thing: being grateful.    This was prompted, after watching a TEDx Talk by Arthur Brooks – The Art and Science of Happiness that was shared to me by a colleague.  The exercise is common and focuses on counting what we have and are grateful for rather than what […]

Visit with Jim – Metaphorical Hope

Today we will visit touch on a trio of prints we are working on mounting and framing.  I put two colors in one Petri dish i front of the camera.  Then I stood back steadily triggering the shutter to capture the three images you see below along with many others.  They are remarkable. Clearly defined […]

Visit with Jim – Cameras, Turbulence and the Illusion of Permanence

Today’s post may wander a bit.  My thoughts revolve around the impermanence in life and the illusion of permanence that cameras bring to us.   The three photos (above right and individuals further below) are taken on a glass plate with inks and paints moving across the field of view at various speeds.  In some cases […]

Visit with Jim – Kintsugi

Today’s post and read is about the Kintsugi esthetic.  Similar to the Wabi-Sabi concept, this takes us in a new and novel direction with regards to imperfection and acceptance.   This also seems to extend the concept of imperfection into the realm of intentionality.  The story starts several centuries ago, ~15th century.  A shogun sends a […]
