When you start getting up early to photograph the sunrise through the mist, or stay up late to follow the calls of an owl in the moonlight then you know you have a love and passion for photography.
As a photographer you start noticing details, you begin to see that you are surrounded by beauty. Every day is full of it, it is in unexpected places, your own back yard and in all the ordinary places. Beauty is all around you, all you have to do is focus and capture.
When you start looking forward to spending time with your camera with every moment that you have, then you know that photography has changed your life and all of your day to day experiences. It allows you to truly live in the present and like an artist painting a master piece, photography guides you to a place of peace, it becomes a form of meditation.
Photography is instant, if you have a camera you can capture any moment in time from where ever you are, it has no language barriers, you can communicate and connect with anyone who has sight from all walks of life.

Natures art.. (wood worm formations in wood and pained word Art on nature's canvas) Beauty all around us in nature and made by man
Photography makes me grateful to have another day on this beautiful planet of ours. We all see beautiful moments all around us every day... I get to capture some of those moments and sometimes those little moments surprise me, some make me smile and laugh out loud, I learn something new from others and some moments bring me joy and make me glad to have another day.
To capture a moment in time and share what you saw with others... That is where the joy is in sharing those beautiful moments with people like you all over the world. Life is about sharing the gifts that we have been blessed with...
Through photography, I get to freeze glimpses of a small piece of the world I lived in. Those little pieces of my world are one way of documenting and sharing a this tiny part of my life with others.
Any question you ever have… the answer you will find in nature… That is.... If you know where to look and how to ask…
Photography is a communication method, it is descriptive, quick and easy to create these days and it can have a strong and emotional connection with the viewer.
"To take a photograph is to align the head, the eye and the heart. It's a way of life." ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
