What do you love? What drives you? What gets you out of bed and out the door everyday? Go beyond the obvious. We all love and feel a passion for our family and loved ones, no question. I’m talking about that thing in your soul that is yours and yours alone. That one passion that has been given to you like a sweet and precious gift that lights your heart on your darkest days?
For me, it’s this. The beautiful, magical miracles that surround us in the landscapes of our daily lives. Rich colors, a multitude of textures, light, shadows, tones, soft curves and rigged lines. As a photographer I often hear that we should carry our cameras with us at all times but I’ve learned that I have to find a balance or I’d never make it to work or home for that matter. (Well, eventually I’d make it home.) I encounter scenes daily, sometimes several times an hour, that I desperately wish I could capture in a frame. In those moments, like this one, that I find myself fortunate enough to be blessed with the right equipment, the time and the perfect light, I am simply and joyously happy.
