Can you tell I am enthusiastic about taking pictures? I believe that is because I see beauty everywhere. I also maintain it is because a scene is a moment in time and we all know a picture can tell a story.
A photograph can capture an honest portrayal of an event or a person. It may represent a side you didn’t visualize before or knew existed. It is apt to communicate a mood or achieve an effective emotion. Perhaps, it masterly seizes a gesture or a ripe color palette.
Whatever the case, most of us are visual learners and an image can incite memory or emotion, instruct us both directly and using a different angle and/or enhance our lives purely with balance, form and tone.
I love to use my personal collection to remind me, to inspire me and to soothe me.
