A State of Becoming

speckled ocean IPHONEphoto

Welcome to the official launch of the Facebook Business Profile of Suzie Biehler Photography.  My photographic trajectory began around age 13 when my Dad became my catalyst for an inspiring path of following the light, the shadows, the action, the moments that fell ever so gracefully though the lens of my camera.

Repeatedly I am nudged by my inner muse that I “become” over and over again.  I muzzle through the passages.  Days I feel on fire – or times when my allusiveness distracts me and I retreat.  The wisdom of age saves me and alerts me a new moment, a new day is imminent.

I’ve been writing this blog for a number of years.  (You can stroll through the archives for a peek).  Due time I step out and show up to you, my friends and new friends and colleagues and family and artists of all mediums.

I encourage you to visit my site, explore, read, be inspired and let me know your favorite image.  This one here is one of mine — it echoes my state of becoming with its rippled textures of pure earth and sea.

Thank you for joining me on this creative wave of exploration.

Is it all a Paradox?

It seems I play with dualities lately.  I am increasingly more and more aware of the balance of yes and no and working with the opposites to bring a united front.

It’s seeing myself as oh so small at times and then in a flip, realizing the immensity of my greater self.  I dance between – finding parallels.

My challenge is to develop a greater consciousness of the spiral down – to be able to catch myself in an instant and bring light.  I look up to the sun.  I lay myself in the grass and point my camera at the flickering leaves on sprawling branches of an immense tree.  I feel the earth hold me, my body, my being.  Again I am reminded, everything serves.  By accepting the conflicts within myself I am able to find a oneness within.  I shot this photograph and later realized I captured an angel walking on the edge of a wave.  Is it real or imagined?  Does it matter.   Together we skip a beat.  And the ocean, just like life, holds us all.
