Seeing Through a Lens

Photography gives you the opportunity to see everything in a new way. Every place I walk and every person I pass look to be full of potentially compelling stories I need to tell through my lens.  Everything seems more interesting. An out-of-the-way plaza suddenly becomes a great location with it’s quirky interior and perfect natural light streaming through the ceiling. A graffiti covered container-unit becomes a striking art piece.  A forgettable grimy alley becomes an interesting background for a subject.

I am suddenly aware of things like the different textures of building materials, the way the light illuminates certain areas, the existence of alleyways & lanes I never realised were there.  Just how incredibly beautiful God-made nature really is.

I feel like I am discovering my neighbourhood & it’s people for the first time. And I love it.
