#1: Welcome to my Moments of Exposure


Hi everybody,

Thanks for stopping by. I am inspired, excited and a little scared at being here and taking the plunge to start a photoblog. Over the years, I have watched several great friends and fellow photographers make this commitment and have followed their blogs with interest. I have learned so very many things from each of them.

At some point, I realized that I was tending to spend a lot of time listening, watching and learning and not so much time photographing myself and taking an image to completion. At this point, I decided to commit to starting a photoblog myself. This is a vehicle that I am hoping will encourage me to shoot more, and take images to completion…enough to be able to show people. That in and off of itself will motivate me to grow as a photographer.

Moments of Exposure is a name my husband, Murali came up with…thanks Murali. This name to me means not only that specific moment when you commit to the image and shoot it, but also the moments when you feel exposed and vulnerable. It is my belief that from these moments of exposures, one grows in life.

Thank you for stopping by and showing support. I appreciate it very much.

    P.S. About the image…

    A perfect opening choice. “Here’s looking at you, kid!”

    Hi everybody, I am awed by the generous and warm encouragement I have received today on this site and via e-mails. I feel like I hit the jackpot. I feel ten times more motivated and gratified to be doing this.

    Paul, you were my original inspiration….and still continue to be. Thank you for srating me off a year or so ago with your help with smugmug.

    Flo, what can I say…whenever I do anything like this, I hold my breath and wait for you to come in with your “Floness”…and sure enough, you are there. I love it and I love you.

    TJ, I feel honored to call you my friend. You are an incredible photographer. Thank you.

    Craig, what can I say…..my photo journey began with you and you have been inspiring and encouraging me every step of the way. Not sure how to say thank you…..but THANK YOU.

    April, you do know, don’t you, that I am a huge fan of yours…and your recent foray into photoblogging is what finally drove me to do this. Thank you for the inspiration and the support.

    Daddy, Thank you for always being there to pep me up with your words of encouragement. I look up to you in so many ways……I am proud to see your comments here.

    Once again….to all of you and many more friends….who have sent me their good wishes….a huge Thank You.

    Very nice, Usha. Tender… Vunerable… Authentic. Some people dream of worthy accomplishments, while you stay awake and do them. Keep the posts rolling!
