|Ray of Light Farm - East Haddam, Connecticut|
No, my superpower is not that I can turn myself into a friendly farm goat at the first hint of trouble.
It's that photography has given me the power to surprise myself. Normally I go out of my way to avoid surprises - I wrap my own Christmas gifts, for example. But through photography, my subjects are able to relate to me in a way I might not have imagined even when I was standing right there in front of them. And like any good superpower, this element of surprise has mostly positive results: hope, imagination, and the desire to take a thousand photos in a single session.
