Welcome to Timeline Photos. A few years back I started peeking around my archives in search of some of the first photographs I had taken. Here records my quest into better understanding my long term love of camera and experiencing the world with it in hand. All photos appear in chronological order hopefully revealing an evolution of how I see and what moves me to speak with light.

The people I meet - Art Melt Opening 2015

On one amazing evening in which I'm still in awe and very appreciative...very fortunate, I enjoyed meeting a few art enthusiasts and artists.

I usually walk a fine line of being present without taking photos or immersing myself with camera in hand.  On this night I tried to balance it out to grab a couple keepsake images.

The Trio

The energy these three friends projected was awesome.  As I approached the State Museum after needing to run back to my car, I couldn't help but notice how they were enjoying a performance and each others company.  Travis, Megan, and Blake, cheers, cheers!

Once I made it upstairs, the scene was just as active with live music and people coming and going in and out of the gallery.  The sunset shining through the building's exterior captivated me, and it was lovely sharing space with others who enjoyed the setting, too.

Robin, thank you for waiting so patiently to view.
