The Inner Path of Photography

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

Being Present…

“Dawn Patrol,” September 11, 2010, Provincetown, Massachusetts

“Photography is about being exquisitely present.”
Joel Meyerowitz

A misshapen rock. Mud flats. A chilly early morning. Not necessarily what you’d think of when making a picture.

But there is that sacred moment in time when all comes together, and the light graces us with the beauty inherent in all.

Perhaps as we are still, patient, and allow the silence within,  the light will also illumine the unseen beauty in our lives.

New “Feet Up Across the World!” Image

Remember when I wrote  a series of articles about how my one off the cuff picture of my feet in the bluebonnets turned into a series of signature images of feet where ever I went?

Here’s a new addition.

I’m in Truro/Provincetown, Massachusetts…getting ready for a workshop with Joel Meyerowitz, a master photographer who I greatly admire.

This is the view from my room’s balcony…historic cottages of Provincetown (and lovely feet of course!)

We start tomorrow afternoon…I’ll be sharing what I learned, stay tuned!

Making Time for Retreat: The “Good Person” Syndrome

“Martha’s Vineyard, Early Evening Windsurfer” copyright 2010 Heidi Straube

I just posted a new article on my Transformational Counseling website, “Making Time for Retreat: The “Good Person” Syndrome.”

Feeling creatively burnt out? Never have time to get to your passion?
See if you have some beliefs that are holding you back.
Find out how “good” you are…and if its time to be “bad” and take a break!

The article is published here…

I actually wrote it  a couple of years ago…but thought it was time to revisit it. With Labor Day weekend coming, we all might need reminding to honor and reward ourselves and others a bit for our labor.

For those who have time off this weekend….for those who are in jobs that require them to work this weekend…and for those who are unemployed, looking for work, and doing the hard job of keeping their faith and spirits up while doing so…I wish you all a time of personal rest, retreat, and nurturing, whether this weekend or soon in the future.  I honor you on this Labor Day.
