Sight vs. Sound

People that know me understand that I love music and love photography.  I am lucky enough to have the use of my ears and eyes to enjoy both.  As I am learning from other photographers that I find through Facebook I am amazed and in awe of the talent that is out there.

I find that music often can enhance what you can visually take in.  This is why I often will create slideshows of my photos and add music to help create the mood or feeling.  Picking the appropriate song is sometimes easy and others not so easy.  Sometimes words fail where music can fill in the blanks of those moods we experiencing.

In networking with my Facebook Page I have virtually met many wonderful photogs out there.  Many of them share the same passion for photography.  There is one woman who has taken beautiful photos that just take your breath away.  I have been looking at her photos and you can tell that she appreciate everything that surrounds her.  It's appreciating the smaller things in life that make each and every day special.  It shows in her photography.  What's even more amazing that through her status's she revealed that she was indeed deaf.  Most people would consider that a handicap but for this woman at the young age of 20 she has empowered herself to show others what she see's and unveils the beauty she sees every day.  It's not always the big things but the small things that you have to stop and look in order to see.  I strongly urge you to go to her site CJP Photography and see what she has created.

Here are a few projects that I have created through the use of photos and music.  The first one is of my boys over the past few years.

The next one is of the horrific storm that we experienced in the fall of 2011.

One of my favorite that I made was of Walker's 3rd grade year and Peytons kindergarten year.  It was the first year after I was laid off and was able to help with their classes as much as I did.  I created the video's for the teachers as a keepsake.  I will not post them as I do not have permission for the parents to post.  

These are just a few of the ones that I have made but hope you enjoy them.
