My hometown. Born at St. Francis, which is now shut down, youngest of a family of eight, we were a large family of fish in a small town….Everyone knew one another. Stores closed at 8pm and you played tennis in the street in front of your home, Tomorrow, I go back to my hometown to shoot a wedding. The actual ceremony will be at SBCC, where I attended college. It perches above the Pacific Ocean. Once, long ago,I remember walking back from an accounting class to where my car was parked. Wondering in my head, why I was taking business classes when all I wanted to do was be a photographer? I could see my shadow, falling on the soil ahead of me; there was no pavement. Could picture me photographing someone while they were walking and I was documenting. Tomorrow, that image takes place. Will be where I’m supposed to be, doing what I was meant to be doing. Feeling overwhelms me. Will have to share this with the couple. And be grateful that my business administration and marketing classes, that I took on that very soil, have actually taken me to that place where I WANT TO BE!!
