My earlier post about losing a muse brought out pain, ansgt, dispair and many feelings here that I never imagined. I wasn't feeling that bad but between the replies, the PMs, the emails and the phone calls I understand that I hit a nerve. Add to that what I read in the GWC post and I sensed there is something that defines us and it is as JT has always said 'passion'. I had photogs contact me that said they were close to quitting after losing their muse, others that said they have never had a muse and think they will never have one. I mean I am overwhelmed with what came from people here on GG that have the passion and it is friggin' burning holes in them and that is what makes this site. I don't care who ends up owning it or what transpires in the weeks ahead it is the 'people of passion' that make this site work even if we forget that on occasion. Yes I lost a muse and yet today I worked with my first muse Aloha and I cannot describe how great it was. After she left I got a call from Kyndra my third muse and we went out for drinks just to reconnect. I miss sweet Summer and I know there is much going on with her and my little darlin' Taylor makes my heart sparkle anytime I look at her images or talk with her.
I had photogs say they were ready to quit because of the loss of a muse or they have never found their first muse. DON'T YOU EVER GIVE UP OR I'LL KICK YOUR SORRY ASS BUTTS. I've sensed the passion and you better stick with it or you will forever regret it.
These images from today are with my very first muse Aloha. She and her husband Dave and their lovely daughter Saturn are my family now. And when I was down it was Aloha who wanted to shoot with me and re-spark me. TO INSPIRE ME. Heck she knows I'm weird and she rides that wave with me and gently quides me with her visions.
So I give you a color and a wb&w with more to come. As she is..........
