Looking through some old pictures I started asking myself the question presented here; what does my photography mean to me. Beyond the simple answers of money, passion or profession affords the deeper question of the true meaning behind your photography. In my search for the answer to this question I came across this picture which best sums up the meaning of my photography in its current state. This hot air balloon had just taken off and was just passing the tree tops much like my photography that is just taking off and headed in an unknown direction. So, when you look at your photography, how do you answer this question? Is there an explanation or a word or even a photograph that can answer this question?
