Kelli Seeger Kim1,297,741It's @112471890387110967375 's birthday!  (okay, well - technically, it's September 7.  But @117681034834791918293 and I couldn't wait any longer!) Anyone familiar with Karen will attest to the fact that she is all about peoples' passions.  What drives them.  What's in their hearts.   What better gift to give to her, than to share with her images that we feel represent our passion/soul/heart!.  Images that truly represent who we feel we are now - or the journey we are on (or traveled), in search of personal growth.   Maybe you have an image of yours that represents a style of photography that you feel a deep connection with. Maybe you have an image that marked a moment in your life that was particularly incredible for you - that touched you in a way that is significant.   We can have a lot of fun with this theme - the most important thing is that it comes from our heart.  :-) So feel free to upload images to this event, and tag them:   #SharingOurLightWithKarenHutton  Sharing Our Light With Karen Hutton (Happy Birthday, Karen!)2012-09-07 13:00:0058

week 12/26. theme: yin yang

I really struggled coming up with a good concept and then in execution for this theme....it seemed every new idea that I attempted failed.  Finally, I returned to an old subject, paper, to get a photograph that I liked... this is it, a minimal, elongated play on the symbol...complimentary opposites, light and dark(er), their relationship here, defined by the edges
