“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever….it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind ….
I am not a photographer – at least I am not a professional by any means, but I love going for walks in nature with camera in tow, hoping to capture something special. And perhaps the photos I take are not special to anyone else but me and that’s okay. I love taking photos of nature, particularly birds. My photos serve as my memory, helping me relive moments long gone.
When I am out walking with camera in hand I feel a sense of peace and a sense of purpose. Each foray holds the hope that today will be the day I capture the magic of nature, the beauty in a blade of grass, or the wonders of an ever changing sky. Photography helps me pay closer attention to the world around me and appreciate it anew.
