The Gift of Opportunity

“The pictures which do not represent an intense interest cannot expect to create an intense interest.” – Robert Henri

I’m in Moab, Utah leading the “Spring in the Southwest” workshop with a great group of passionate students. That in of itself is a tremendous privilege that I try to remember as often as I can. I also get to spend time in a place that truly nourishes my body and mind.
 
There is a a scale to the desert that alters my perspective about time, space, and meaning. Trying to capture that in a photograph is extremely difficult, but the attempt is what matters most to me. Reacting to the landscape and its beauty is what I enjoy the most. The results of the creative process are a nice reward, but a secondary reward nonetheless. 
 
The primary benefit is realizing how fortunate I am to have that opportunity.
