I took a series of shots of a Baptist church in the Atlantic Highlands--jersey shore. I went back there for a second time, because this time the sun was out and beaming brightly. I've always experimented with exposure with various subjects and locations. Both under and over have some remarkable affects that can go unnoticed untill one reviews their work. As a teacher, I tend to be quite thematic with all my art, but photography (especially combined with words) becomes much more than literal. Combined with figurative applications of variety and/or consistancy, the photo has the possibillity and potential to touch/affect/move more minds, hearts, and souls--including my own. The feedback I get--more often than not-- is validating; however, of even more value is how when people respond I become more excited, inspired, and motivated to produce more work that continues to do the same--connect more with people on a deeper and more meaningful level.

    I love the way you literally "hung" this out. It certainly makes for a dramatic effect.

    Validation is so important. A friend once told me about his high school years. He said he was small and geeky. I asked if he was bullied. He said, "No... worse. I was ignored". Failure to have impact is womething few can tolerate Love the image merging with your words.
