It’s actually a journey of stories, and, just like a writer always has a pen and notepad with him, my camera goes wherever I do.” “Water always has called to me. Somewhere deep inside me the rhythms and sounds of waves, lakes and streams sing a special song for me. Also, I’ve always been enchanted by the ocean and the ambiance of small coastal towns, so much of my works centers around the “beach time” that so many of us yearn for.”,/p> “Vibrant colors are also a mainstay in my photographs. Newspaper photographers taught me much about composition and colors. They also taught me to see the possibility of photographs where others might not…they developed my photographic eye, so to speak. Elliott is married with three children, one of whom is in heaven. He and his wife, Jerrie, also have five grandchildren and two great- grandchildren. “Amelia died in 1995 at age 17. Often, I find myself taking photographs for her, because she did not have a chance to see all of God’s beauty that she should have. I share them because I know that she would want you to see the beauty around us each day, and that she would tell you to take it all in.” Elliott and his wife are co-founders of The Amelia Center, a grief assistance center for parents who have lost children and children who have lost siblings. It is a community outreach department of Children’s Health System. Now over twenty years old, the Center has brought renewed hope to over 13,000 individuals.
