Quiet Moments

I’ve created a slideshow as a simple way to look back at my year through the images that I’ve posted using Lightroom mobile to my Instagram account. I find this yearly exercise yields interesting insights about where I am in my life and allows me to reflect upon the places that I’ve gone and the experiences that I’ve had. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year to see the path that you followed in 2015.

Visual Memories – The Year in Review

Another Year, and other slideshow! I’ve selected my favorite images that I’ve posted over the past year on Instagram and created a short slideshow from them. I enjoy reflecting on the past year and always try to see the relationship between events in my life. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year -I have found both the process and the results to be very insightful.

Fractured Moments

Last year I created a short slideshow (Moments Alone), from images taken over the year using my mobile phone. I found it to be a enjoyable way to look back at the year and reflect upon the places that I’ve gone, the people I’ve met and the things that I paid attention to. So, I decided to do it again this year and here is the result  “Fractured Moments”. I would strongly encourage you to create a collection of your own images for the year -I have found both the process and the results to be very insightful.

Moments Alone

I enjoyed my personal project so much from last year that I decided to do it again.  I’m sure that the images will mean more to me than they do to you, but I would encourage you – every year – to create a collection of your own images and look at them as a complete body of workto see what you can discover about yourself.

The Red Thread

This simple slideshow looks back at the year and reflects unon the places that I went, the people I’ve met and the things that I was paying attention to. All images were photographed on an iPhone, edited with Instagram and are displayed as Diptychs.
