I am in the process of moving into a new home. I'm still living in Phoenix, AZ near the beautiful South Mountain, but in a nicer, larger house with a gorgeous view of the mountain. My artistic side is feeling inspired, I feel more grounded here, and I suspect much creativity and spiritual joy will result from this move. I am grateful to my Mother for making this move possible by letting me lease the house for her.
I have received mixed responses to this blog. Most are positive, but occasionally I have had angry and violent responses and acusations that I'm just in this for the money. Not sure why that would be a problem. Are artists not allowed to be paid for our work? But the fact of the matter is, that I make no money from this project at this time. Actually, if anything it's a drain on the resources, but it's one that I do not mind. I pay my own travel, food, etc. when I go elsewhere to take pictures, hence most of my pictures being taken in Phoenix, AZ where I live, and Southern California where my parents live. I do hope to visit some friends in New Mexico in the next year, and take pictures while I'm there as well.
This blog was created for free on blogspot.com and I was blessed with the gift of a camera from my grandfather when he passed away, which is what I usually use. I do have some film from my HOLGA camera that I need to develop, but until I find the time, location, and money for supplies I won't be posting any of those results. So in the mean time most everything you see here will be digitally taken with my camera.
Guest photographers are welcome. If you would like to share such pictures, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com and we will discuss how to best work that out.
If you would like me to take your picture for Gender DiverCity, please send me an email letting me know what part of the world you are located in, and if I have any plans to be there, we will work out a time and a place to meet up and take your picture. Now I'll head back to unpacking boxes and I hope you will continue enjoying your day.
