We are all travelers
on the River of Time...


River of Time Photography

My name is Ed Morykwas.
I took all the pictures
on this website.

"The River of Time"
actually started as a poem
that I wrote for a friend
celebrating her 21st birthday,
stationed overseas
in the war.

I wanted to tell her
everything I've learned.

I wanted to say
that we get up every morning
and tell ourselves
it's just another ordinary day.
We go places,
do things,
talk to people,
but we're too busy to think about
how life goes on.

We are all travelers
on the River of Time.

So what can we do
to embrace each moment
and be aware as humanly possible?
For me,
it's through photography.

When I take pictures,
it forces me to pay attention--
to open my eyes
and truly
what's right in front of me.

In photographs,
time stands still.

Life keeps changing.
We can only go forward.
We can't go back...
in photographs.

In photographs,
we can hold onto people
and experiences,
even when they're long gone,
and share memories
with family
and friends.

My goal is to capture
those moments for you.

If you need
a photographer
for senior portraits,
family portraits,
birthdays, anniversaries,
or other special occasions,
please feel free to
contact me.

I'm located
near Detroit, Michigan,
but I love to travel.
