    It’s been a long time since I took your class, almost a year and I’m going to figure out how to take more as I have more time to do so and want to make photography a bigger part of my life.

    I was thinking about your question — indirect inspiration. I’ve been exploring aging and the elderly (my mother-in-law just turned 90) and I find that I’m often inspired and intrigued by the depth of their souls written on their faces. There is a slowness to their movements including their smiles as if they’ve seen it all and to hurry is a waste of time. This is a bit stream of conscious yet I find myself drawn to the elderly as they sit outside their door or in front of a restaurant sometimes as much a part of the scenery as the city surrounding them. Catching a glimpse of an arm, an eye or a smile as they watch the world go by from their windows. All gloss rubbed away to reveal the true life underneath. Joy, pain, loneliness and contentment flitting about and usually a smile, sometimes a dimple if I offer one first.
