I believe that we need to take the time and appreciate the finer things in life. What we see today could very easily be gone tomorrow. Everywhere I go my camera goes with me. The joy of having very young nieces and nephews is the joy of seeing things again for the very first time. The wonder through a child's eyes is amazing.
Sometimes the minds' eye is more vivid than the camera lens. HDR photography is an excellent way to let the mind's creativity and the photo to become one.
I have lived throughout the western United States and have traveled throughout the world. The great thing about being attached to the camera is the fact that you can share your experiences with any one from any where.
Although the camera is always within in reach, there are only a hand full of photos of me out there. I am never one to be in front of the camera.
