A photograph of a yellow-red sunset over the Atlantic Ocean.  The photo is a gradient of yellow at the top, flowing into orange and red.  Then 3/4 of the way down is the horizon line where the deep blue of the ocean meets the sky.

The Value of Photography

I have had a camera of some kind in my hand for as long as I can remember. The ability to capture a moment in time is kind of like having a superpower. There is a time and place for photography in life, because it is not always convenient to carry paper and pencils around and make time to stop long enough for a picture to be drawn.  

I enjoy taking photos of landscapes, people and events. My photos tell the story and the emotion at a specific moment-- the sun setting in the Grand Canyon, a child picking flowers or catching a frog. I love to capture the images of people leaving an event after a long day of meetings. Their brains are often clogged with information and now they seek a relaxing respite. The story I want to capture can be found in the facial expressions and the body posture. I notice the small details of the colors swirling in a soap bubble, or the quiet solitude of a person sitting on the beach. I capture life on an SD card.
