Why “Pay What You Choose”?

This work is something that I enjoy..
I have been blessed and inspired by so many people who have shared what they enjoy with me.  My gratitude is immense, and I now find myself beginning to look for ways to pay it back or pay it forward.


I believe that by allowing people to participate in the gifting-receiving process in a way that works for them, community is strengthened…a network and a reciprocity is formed between people.  Choice allows us to determine the value of something for ourselves, and to give back in a way that works for us and feels right in our own hearts. 

I believe that people are innately generous.  We find ways to give back – if not now, then in the future; if not with goods, then simply with our gratitude and love;  if not to the one from whom we received, then to someone else we meet along the way.  
We are all connected.

My name is Arjenna Strong.  I used to be an elementary school teacher.  Now I am a nomad, a traveler, a dabbler.

I never considered myself a ‘photographer’.  I often go months without touching a camera. Then suddenly on a whim I’ll spend a day, or a week, taking hundreds of photos…after which I don’t touch the camera again for months!
I have used cheap cameras, reasonably-good cameras, and sometime even cell phones to capture my pictures.  I often break my cameras (accidentally).
Sometimes I forget I own a camera.

And yet, as soon as I start downloading and playing with my pictures on the computer, I become entranced by the whole process.  As I finish with a picture and step back to look at it, I feel as if I am seeing my subjects for the first time – I am often blown away by their beauty.  The act of taking the photo also slows me down and enables me to notice beauty that I hadn’t suspected was there.  Perhaps that’s why I often avoid doing it…..itinsists that I slow down and pay attention.

My intent had never been to sell my photos or cards; it was just something I did for friends’ birthdays.  One day, as I sat figuring out how to superimpose a quote on a photo, the thought occurred to me that what I was doing was ‘playing’…and that if every once in awhile I ‘played’ with photos, and then found a way to let other people also benefit from it, it wouldn’t be like work, it would be like FUN.

Inspired by all the people and businesses who have blessed me through their philosophies of giving, and the gratitude and love I have felt from participating in those ventures, I am experimenting with ways to give back and bless others through what I do.

And so begins a new play-opportunity for me.  Please join me in any way you see fit!
