Moments in time

“Nirvana is this moment seen directly. There is no where else than here. The only gate is now. The only doorway is your own body and mind. There’s nowhere to go. There’s nothing else to be. There’s no destination. It’s not something to aim for in the afterlife. It’s simply the quality of this moment.”

  2. Hello Susan you have a very nice site here I like it. Can you please get in touch with me I am a friend and co contributor of Robyn Graham’s on Monochromia and I would like to ask you something. The url to Monochromia is http://groupexpo.wordpress.com and you can get in touch with me through the Contact Us section of our blog. Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

  3. Wow, your photos are so amazing! I love your way to capture things. it makes me dream and thats one of the best things a picture can do to me. thanks for that!

  4. Hi Susan- Thank you for following my photography blog, Jane’s Lens. I hope you enjoy my work. I just realized I first came upon your terrific work on Monochromia. You have a great eye. Looking forward to more.

  5. My all time favorite quote by Ansel Adams, he is who inspired me to pick up a camera.

    I love coffee, I’ll believe I’ll do just that and see the world through your eyes.

    Looking forward to this journey!


  6. Dear Susan, Each of your photos is a poem, and your Summer Book is the best reading that we could get for the season. Bravo, my friend, and thanks so much! 🙂

  7. Every time I visit Licht Years, I know I am going to get lost (in the best possible way) and not want to be found.

  8. What a wonderful blog, Susan. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to get here! I have long admired your photos on Flickr, and it’s lovely to see which ones you choose to bring together here.
    Your compositions are interesting and often make me think, yes! That’s just what I would have made the focal point!! There is lovely mellowness to your processing, and your use of depth of field is great – both of which I am rather envious of! I guess I’ll just have to keep practising! Lizzie.

  9. Your photography is outstandingly beautiful and it’s a pleasure to follow you. You’re a role model. And so is your Instagram profile. 🙂

  10. Hi Susan!

    Martha, from Instagram, here:). I may be taking a break there but I was overjoyed to see your new blog post this morning! Your images are so incredibly beautiful and charming, as always. And your storytelling is like none other I know. Thank you for sharing these glimpses into your life…I found myself totally drawn in, wanting to see the next chapter. I love your blog and love seeing your images all together, telling us a wonderful story. Gorgeous art, so enriching!

    1. Dear Martha, Thank you so much xoxo. I do enjoy storytelling through images and I’m happy you enjoy visiting here. Hope you are having a wonderful break, taking lots of photos! See you on IG soon?

      1. Hi Susan! Thank you so much for your reply:)) I hadn’t seen it before now! I just came on now to tell you how much I love your latest blog post…what a wonderful collection of images and a very poignant and beautiful description of what a photograph is and how it holds a very place in our lives. Love your all your art and work so much:). Happy Thanksgiving🦃!!
        Martha xxoo

  11. Hi Susan:))
    Just wanted to tell you how much I loved your latest entry and the train with your Grandmother. Your work is just so beautiful but especially meaningful to me, as our family moved from Massachusetts many years ago. Sadly, after my Mom’s passing 6 years ago, their home in the Cape was sold and my ties are much less. I love reading your stories, along with your beautiful photography. They transport me back to my very happy childhood and teenage years. I, too, remember taking a train to Boston with my Grandmother, to see the Ice Capades:). My parents took us in also, to Jordon Marsh to have pictures taken with Santa. You have rekindled so many fond memories! Thank you! It is such a pleasure to have found you and to follow your beautiful work. It touches me in so many ways!
    Happy New Year!

    1. oh yes, I remember the ice capades and pics with Santa too, in fact every Christmas I bring out an old pic of Santa and me taken at Jordan Marsh. I’ve been exploring how certain scenes I come across trigger memories from my past and I’m happy to know that these images bring back memories for you as well. Thank you, friend.

      1. Thank you so much for your reply, Susan! Your images always trigger memories for me-I think because I grew up there and have a yearning in my heart to remember, to reminisce, to not forget. It doesn’t hurt that you are such an amazing photographer! I will always feel so inspired by your work:)
        By the way, I temporarily disabled my IG account-life is busy here (blissfully so!) with graduations (3!) prom, plays, field trips, spring concerts-you name it! I want to stay focused on the family and these very fleeting tender years. I am so thrilled to have your blog to follow and keep up with your beautiful art! Love “Nourishment”-your night photography is exceptional and I love what you are doing.
        Ok! Take care! Hopefully, will return to IG in a few months xoxo
        (I have a private account for the family/etc so I may check in on that, too).

      2. Thanks so much, Martha. Have a wonderful summer and I look forward to seeing your work again in a few months.

  12. It’s like you’ve distanced yourself without comments. Still love seeing your world through your eyes (or lens), but there seems to be something lacking in the connection. Miss you. Hope it’s because you’re getting too busy and successful. You certainly deserve that. 😀

    1. Hi Gunta, So sorry, just saw your email. Yes, I am busy but not sure about the successful part 😊 Last summer I deleted the like button and comments, just felt like everything on the internet is based on likes and whatnot..I post here mainly for myself and should others care to visit, that’s really great. I’ve listed my email should anyone want to contact me and I usually get back to people in a reasonable amount of time (these past few weeks have been unusually busy with family stuff). Another reason is that I was spending far too much time on the internet and needed to free myself up. I still spend time reading other’s blogs and always find inspiration! Hope you are well!

      1. Your genius lies in linking the photos to the words, which is such a beautiful combination! You don’t need to take credit for the words. 🙂
