Family Matter "new location new view"

Today June 30 we gave our keys to our Condo new owner, it has been a crazy few months, and we are not over yet, still have to sell the car, we got an offer and a pick up date, but still till it's not gone it's not over.

We are trying to make sense of our new life, living with friends till our departure for Mendoza Argentina. 

I had no time to write or even review the picture I took from my last visit to family in Montreal and Vancouver, but it should be done before the end of July.

Last Thursday coming back from cleaning and packing completely exhausted, I sat on my friend deck to relax when a big storm was forming in front of my eyes, even tired I couldn't resist I had to get my camera and get the shot, I love the view from their condo, the farm land of Okotoks:)

Brian E Swinyard

This work of mine was inspired by Brian, this was one of my first creative digital processing, learning always, I'll never be done learning and that's why I love what I do, thank you Brian

Brian  was my inspiration when I did that piece in Buenos Aires Argentina many years ago, Brian had such an impact on my creativity development, it's hard to express it with word, thank you Brian.

When I decided to get back to photography in 2006,  and enrolled in an online class with UK School of Photography I had no idea that I will have such an opportunity, I didn't start the class with Brian, don't remember the other instructor name, the only things I remember about her were her harsh remarks, I was going to quit the class when I got an email letting me know that I was transfer to another instructor, his name Brian Swinyard that change my life, he was a real inspiration a great motivator and passionate photographer.  Brian  helped me in defining my vision, understanding how to transfer it into my photography, how to let go, to refine my own style!

I wanted to write this post to make him aware of how important he was in my life and my progression and a better understanding of art and photography.

Photography became an extension of my vision and creativity  a way to exteriorise and express who I am and how I feel.
