There’s so much out there that is worthy of viewing. So many sunsets, full moons, wild animals, flowers, people, buildings, etc… I feel that I need to go out and shoot. I need to share what I see with everyone. And when I think about it, I think that’s what photography is all about. I photograph to show the world’s natural beauties and disasters, others however photograph for different purposes. It gives us a new way to look at a person or object. Everyone photographs differently and for different reasons and when I see someone else’s photograph I know that I probably would never see what they captured unless they took the picture. I like to see as many pictures as I can; it helps me to see the world in a different perspective.
Photography started as just a hobby, or even a time killer. But it is a time for me to relax and as the old saying goes “Stop and smell the roses”. It allows me to get away from the busy, rushing world of technology and focus on trying to capture a certain moment of time. And if other people like the photos that is a plus. Heck if I like the results it is a plus. But during the time from when I frame the shot to the end of a shot, it is all filled with many possibilities.
