Looking for votes for "Random Stuff with EricaJay Bottoms Up Contest"!

Writing stuff for things like this is like having root canal for me. I seem to ramble, and without someone to keep me on track I just run amok. You might say I “lack focus.” I guess that's because I see things differently.

I believe I learned to re-focus my vision during one particular family car trip when I was a kid. My dad looked out the window and said, “That’s an odd place to hang a bicycle.” Well, I looked all over the place – high, low, left, right, near, and far – and I couldn't find that bicycle anywhere! Finally, I gave up and asked, “Where? I don't see it.” He said there was no bicycle, "But that WOULD be an odd place to hang one." To this day (50+ years later) I look around and think, "That’s an odd place to shoot a nude.”

I have re-worded my dad’s observation a bit from the original.

Some people call my type of photography "Guerrilla Photography" because we "Shoot and run!" However, at my age it's more like, "Shoot and walk away slowly – then go back and get the camera bag that I forgot."

I think of my work as "Serendipitous Photography"; I shoot what I find when we arrive on a location. I use natural, existing light. I try to compose each image to maximize the visual impact of the elements present: light and shadow, location, objects, and, of course, the model, who is the magic element that makes the inanimate objects come to life. I feel the key component in my work is the ability to collaborate with the models to create a shared vision.
