Creative Wednesday - Windows



Recently I was pondering a theme for one of my round robin journal exchanges..."Through the Windows of the Past". To tell you the truth, it had me stumped for a while. Then one day it dawned on me that photography provides a window to the past. The lens, in fact, is like a window to a moment in time frozen forever in a picture. Like many of you, I collect vintage photos so in keeping with this theme I used a couple of them and included quotations about photography. These pages are my submission for this week's Creative Wednesday challenge.

This is what makes you such a talented artist Heather -- your ability to think outside the box, to let your imagination guide your creative process. Cameras and old photographs are most definitely windows to the past. Beautiful.
