Acting on instinct…


It has been along time since I photographed people (apart from my own family). Yet recently, I have been intrigued again with the human form, and an old passion has been reignited. I have found that my old love of photographing people is still deep with me.

The way light lands on faces and bodies is mesmerizing and I am always surprised at how a single fleeting moment or glance can be caught forever on a camera…sometimes creating the most unexpected surprises.

When I look at this image, a simple string of words pops into my head..

“A touch you know fleeting”

What that means exactly, I don’t know. Where it comes from, I don’t know exactly. But it feels right to me.

      Thanks Bart, I really appreciate your comments and feedback. You have a good point about the necklace, although I do like the contrast, but i do see your point also about it being dominant. Thanks again, Angela.
