One of the great joys of photography is that it allows an escape, pressing only the current moment into awareness; into a focus where all else recedes.
To me, most pictures are either an illustration or record of something, or a striving to convey the exquisite - sometimes both. Either way it is a communication of the here and now - of a moment, of the inimitable.
If photography has purpose beyond being a recording, or a subjective expression of the exquisite, then perhaps it is the twin hopes of communicating the beauty of this place we share with all life and encouraging others to appreciate and enjoy it too. At least that is how it is for me. Beautiful, fragile and transient - endlessly fascinating. Soul food.
And I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t photographed at least one sunset - so it must be true!
Thank you for visiting. Happy looking and happy photographizing. (Nice new word).
