“Faith becomes a bridge between where I am and where I want to go.” ~TD Jakes

When I first saw that quote, I felt the weight of it. Thirteen words that I could identify with, that felt true based on my experiences in life. And being a ‘visual’ person, those words brought images to mind – an unassuming bridge with a dramatic sky to add interest. (Yes, even my imagination is well-composed! I’m a photographer, afterall. :p) once I had a visual impression of the quote, I set about bringing that image to life.

I admit, this is not the first time I have created a photo inspired by a quote. It started as a personal journey, which I then opened up to friends. I began making quotagraphs of words that were meaningful to the people that touched my life. It was a nice gift, but also, a way to flex my creative muscles.

I recently talked to my friend Nick at Nick Exposed about my quote images, with the intention of sharing some inspiration. The conversation rapidly turned into a plan – we want to share the creativity with both our fellow photographers, but also, with you…the people who support, encourage and inspire me.

So, Nick and I have planned a creative quotography adventure and you are all invited. You do need a camera of some sort, and more importantly…the desire to learn, to grow and to have fun making art with other creatives. If you think you’d like to join the party, leave a comment below, send me an email at seespotsphoto at yahoo dot com or find me on Facebook…and make sure to like my page while you’re there!

As always, thank you for your support! It gives me faith that this bridge will take me where I want to be. 🙂
