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
during the war.

I wanted to tell her
everything that I've learned.

I wanted to say...
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 events,
even when they're long gone--
or share experiences
with family and friends,
even those who
weren't there originally.
It's magic!

My goal is to capture
those moments for you.

I'm retired now
(no new clients)
but I'm still taking pictures
and still appreciating
irreplaceable day
life together
