I have started this blog as a real time journal for my fairly new passion of photography.
About a year ago I brought a decent digital camera. The reason I did this was because I wanted to pay more attention to the world around me. I had noted that it was rare for me to look up, or around and truly see the world and appreciate it.
One night I was driving home from my late shift, it must have been about 12:30 when I looked at the road in front of me and saw it, really saw it. The street lights lit the scene, all the traffic lights were green, the trees were in full leaf and a slight summer mist veiled everything. As I looked down the straight, deserted road full of colour and life I was struck at how beautiful it was.
That which I would usually have missed was made obvious to me on this night and all I knew was how great I felt by being so present and witnessing the beauty of the moment… I wished I had a camera.
From that night I have played around with taking photos and this blog is my attempt to be more dedicated to it. To look for and find the magic and the beauty in each moment and to appreciate it and maybe capture it.
