The creative process of seeing an image has changed me.   This experience has increased my gratitude and happiness in ways that only the heart  comprehends.  My website  www.haroldemccray.com illustrates my focus–ordinary people and things found in life primarily in the inner cities which has widened my appreciation of objects that frequently go unnoticed.   It is an adventure that leads to many new findings.

Ordinary things, especially those found in the inner cities, have been and continue to present a special amount of intrigue for me.  This special fondness for the eclectic — whether evolved from nature or made by human effort, has resulted in images from dissimilar location.

My interest in how the written word affects our senses has given rise to finding my poetic voice in my photography.   I have discovered that the images that words create can be uplifting, but the images captured in photographs are transporting, going beyond the written words.

Recently, I have explored portrait photography.  My unique vision is still evolving, but I give credit to the development of my technique to the Rocky Mountain School of Photography, a nationally known school for career photographers.

My photographs have appeared in many publications and have been displayed and  included in the collections of the Washington, D.C. National Cathedral, Baltimore’s Peoples and Parks, DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, The Pehl Collection, state office buildings, several corporate officers, local restaurants, offices and private houses.    My list of solo and group shows is extensive, but my preference is the Internet:   a better venue for photography.  Many of my images are available online for purchase at Fine Art America.

    • Krishna, Writing regularly is a problem for me. I was off to a good start, but the garden and caring for a sick friend has taken a large portion of my block of time normally delegated to writing. I am slowing getting back into the swing. I do you hope visit again. Thanks again for sharing your comments.
