Ruby Gold, Oakland, California Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement You usually only have a few seconds to wake up and notice when a compelling picture reveals itself to you. Maybe there's something special in the quality of the light, or the intensity or quietness in the colors. Maybe it's the look in someone's eye, or the poetry in their motion. Somehow, the parts all come together to form a moment. And in the very next moment those parts will change or shift and the scene as it stood vanishes.
When I can capture that moment into an image before it moves on, it feels like I've gotten away with something magical. It's almost illicit and definitely thrilling. In these galleries are some of my captured moments. I hope you enjoy them, and, if you do - please tell a friend!
