Introductions: Petals Unfolding

Leanne Cole, a photographer who I have admired for many years, today has featured my photography on her blog. I am so honored that she did this for me and for once, really am speechless. Leanne asked me questions regarding why I photograph and in answering, I talked about a part of my life I usually do not. Please take a look at the incredible generosity of a woman from Australia for me, who I consider to be one of the top photographers in the world. Please enjoy!!!

      1. There have been times especially of late, that it has been difficult to even pick up my camera due to all the stress in my Life lately. Yet once I pick that camera up I walk into my magical world and all my troubles just disappear. I have SO much to be grateful for. One of the ways I give back is by what I do at Petals. I Love sharing and to share of myself is no greater Gift, at least to me. Bless you for supporting me and thank you again for taking the time to read my story as to why photography is so important to me. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. John, I really thank you for taking the time to read what I wrote. Yes I have had a difficult life and what I wrote constitutes for only a part of it. Yet out of all what I have gone through I have gained so much in wisdom, growth, and Love. Photography truly is my therapist and so much more. I hope to one day to really fly with my Talent. At this time of my life, it just would not be possible. One day, though, one day, John. 🙂 Love, Amy ❤

      1. Oh yeah, it is on my About page, isn’t it? I’d forgotten all about that. *blushing* My brain has been so wrapped around cats lately I suppose I’ve become a bit absent minded. What can I say? LOL ❤

      2. Oh great, now I really feel “old”. Dang! Now I will NOT be going with the age thing here, just that I have been so overwhelmed trying to figure out how best to heal some of my cats that are presenting with some baffling symptoms. Again I find myself taking another one to the vet today. It really just has been nonstop.
        Truth be told I barely remember that post yet I know I wrote it. Huh! A lot of deep thoughts have been coming lately and I have been doing a lot of looking back too. Gee now I will just have to go find that post and see what I did write. *red faced* LOL

      3. Uh-uh! You are NOT going to get me to admit that. No way, cuz. *giggling then sighing* I never foresaw aging like it is happening. I hope next Life if I ever do come back to this crazy planet, is to remember to cherish YOUTH when I have it. And perhaps bring along with me some of the wisdom I have attained in my aging gracefully years this Life. LOL

    1. To have inspired another with my own Life, is truly a Gift … a Gift of Self. This is only one aspect of my Life, my friend, so this is not the only “crisis” I have experienced. I can say about this one, when I knew I would continually go downhill, I began to fight back, no matter the extreme pain I had. To this very day, I am still walking this event of my Life. I am Blessed for knowing you. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Thank you, Raewyn. I really thank you for your generous congratulations to me. I don’t receive a whole lot of recognition for what I do or for who I am, so when Leanne came to me wanting to do this feature, I was just blown away completely. This event will only encourage me to learn even more, and to bring to Petals better and better images. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Thank you, Scott. I am a bit overwhelmed truth be told, but things will settle down. Wishing my Life wasn’t so jammed packed so that I could really run with my photography in the ways I Dream of doing. Just getting the recognition from this incredible photographer is more then I ever saw coming!! Love, Amy ❤
