Photography soothes and calms me, it puts life in perspective
My version of closing your eyes and taking a deep breath
Displaying the world as I see it challenges my creativity and keeps my sights on the horizon
So much of what we see every day gets buried in the muck of our busy lifestyles
You pass by a stand of trees on a country road, maybe give it a quick glance, then be on your merry way
You have seen a stand of trees
If you were to actually take the time to stop and look, you would see an old abandoned farmhouse hidden in that mature and well established stand of trees
How long must it have taken for those trees to grow and completely envelope the house?
Who might have lived there?
Now it's not just a bunch of trees
It's a place of history, depth and imagination
All because it was frozen in time with the click of a shutter
So cool to bring that out
