The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Be”

A lone egret steps carefully at sunset, the pink glow and clouds reflected in the still water.



An Evening Meditation
(Master Egret inspires)

Slowly, carefully lift the foot… Hold…

now place it…gently, deliberately…

back into the water.

Pause.   

Breathe.   

Be.

No rush today. May you hold the inner silence.

A Note from Heidi:

July 2019 finds me in St. Petersburg, Florida, discovering new mysteries of the sea and sky, finding ever more companions in creating and exploring the world.  With each move, I experience a combination of the familiar plus the feeling of a foreign country – always new beginnings as well as deepening what has come before.  I look forward to sharing with you more about the inner journey, as well as the images that inspire me. 

“My life is a study in living with impermanence –
each day brings its own subtle or dramatic changes.

The world is my studio.”

About Heidi




“Blessings”

A window looks out on the marsh, blue water of the high tide, winter grasses, a billowing curtain, sun shining through



When I count my blessings

I count you twice.


(Happy St. Patricks Day.)

A Note from Heidi:

The picture above is a view from my winter home and studio on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. It’s a short walk to First Encounter Beach, and at high tide, especially near times of the full moon, the sea comes in and covers the marsh. The view is constantly changing; sometimes it’s quite hard to concentrate on my work, as I look up and am once again in awe. The beautiful sky and clouds, the breeze rippling the water, and the happy paddling of the geese and ducks making their wonderful sounds – all bring me back to my soul.

Share the pleasure of changes with me…

“Begin Again”

Dramatic white and cream clouds rise in a dark blue sky, inspiring expansion and soulful feelings.



“Begin Again” is one of my favorite meditation phrases,
taken from the Buddhist practice.

It reminds us that each new year, each day, each moment
we are always free…

to recommit to what is most important to us
look to the future with positive anticipation
relax, allow for imperfection, and act again.

Breathe Deeply….

May you feel the grandeur of your Soul
now…and now…and now.

Begin Again.

About Heidi

“Exquisite”

“And what of the clouds?” she says
“They dance the beauty of your soul,” he replies

Deep.
Sacred.

Such is the true nature of passion.

The Heart unfolds its layers
offers its mysteries
opens and softens to Love

Invites the Known
Risks the Unknown

Will the Light expand or the Heart be veiled again?

the Beauty is constant
Passion still alive

Soul’s gift –
Always living from the Exquisite
