An unexpected yet extraordinary by-product of this blogging experience has been the online connections I have forged over the past year. Connections with photographers who have turned this experiment of mine into a two-way conversation and dialogue, rather than a one-sided communication. Individuals who have become my artistic support system; who offer encouragement and inspiration as well as understand the highs and lows of the creative journey.
Thank you for that. For the comments and input and feedback. For supporting my efforts to experiment. For sharing your struggles and triumphs. For asking for my help when you thought I had something to share. For your sense of humor. For being here, even in the middle of your hectic lives.
For like these pillars, even slightly weathered and worn, we can hold each other up.
Texture Tuesday Processing
