One area that I have grown consistently interested in is the area of photography. It seems cliche this day in age where anyone can buy an expensive camera that does all of the work, and seem like a person with an eye for art. I don't want to be one of those people. I don't want it to be a fluke. I want to see the shot before I take it. I want to hunt down the angles, colors, and distances.
For me, photography is not just about something pretty to look at. Instead, it is a way to capture life. A memory. A moment in time. An emotion. I recently read that "photographs take their power from memory and emotion. A picture tells its own story, shaped by the mood or insights of the person you are at the time you take it." I was astonished to see my very own feelings and beliefs before my eyes in print!
So, even though I am not artsy, here are some of my favorite "originals". I hope they tell my story.
