Photography can communicate many things through a still and silent image. It could simply be beauty, natural, human, or created. It could be a time of day, the blue glow of twilight, the golden glow of sunrise, or the harsh mid-day sun. It could be a mood or feeling, in the cold gloom of night or the warmth of the sun. Whatever you want to capture or communicate, photography is a wonderful tool. Both simple and challenging.
I have always found photography enjoyable, both as a consumer and a photographer. I especially enjoy wandering out on a crisp morning before the sunrise, to capture the first light over the countryside. I first got interested in photography as a 7-year-old, borrowing my parents film camera in Orlando Florida and taking half a rolls worth of pictures of the welcome mat at a laquinta motor-inn. It was revived around two decades ago when I received my first digital camera from my uncle, and from seeing the fantastic images my father created with his Nikon DSLR. Over the years photography had to take a backseat to other interests and passions but a couple of years ago, I again bought myself a camera to try and capture the world around me; not as I see it, but as I experience it.
