Leaves on the ground, what stories do I tell?






We have had an amazing run at the studio.  This whole year was crazy but the last 6 months set all sorts of records.

This morning I wake to find frost on the ground. At the Studio,  I now find frost in my client’s pockets.  Everyone is scared.  Everyone is nervous.  Only the warm glow of the election is keeping things from freezing up. 


The coffee is rich and warm.  The morning sun is changing the window’s darkness into shapes of fall color.  I have some time today.  Stories that have been held up inside by the demands of commerce now have room to wiggle free.


Snippets of conversations overheard,  “He kissed me so I kissed him back” an attractive 30 something women told her friend.  “My life was hard before I met him” said the eighty-year-old lady at next table pointing to her second husband. 


My editor sends back the new photos and tells me how great they are.  These are pictures that I almost did not send in because I did not believe in them.  What to make of all this?


It is time to cook.  What is in the pantry?  Do I mix up some comfort food or do I try something completely different.  Leaves on the ground, what stories do I tell?

There are a lot of new images on our website:  www.zavesmith.com
