No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.”― Ansel Adams 

Art is subjective. Some photographers are true at heart and believe straight out of the camera is the only way and others find different avenues to express themselves.  I strive for both. I try to get the shot on the first try, but if I do not... the object is to try again.  Then there are times where I see the picture as an oil or water painting and use photo editing to achieve a positive outcome.  There is no one avenue of photography I am not willing to try and although I personally prefer a certain one over another, I try not to limit myself.  I love macro photography and believe there isn't a flower I walk by that I do not want to pull out the camera to capture its beauty.  Someone once asked me once how many flower pictures do you need and I replied with "don't know as if there is a limit."

I actively started my photography about 2 years ago and have steadily grown in my abilities.  At least, I hope I am growing.  Photography is a hobby for me. It is a stress reliever. It is an expression of myself.  Every day is new and  I am a different person for each new day.  I have my favorite places that I constantly return to but I realized that they too are new each time I return.  And I try to find that new aspect while I am there to photograph the scene/s.  I would love to be able to travel to exotic places and capture all the beauty and history there is to be found, but I am also very content to walk out my back door and find the same.  Photography has opened my eyes to the small details in life and I am extremely grateful for these opportunities to achieve a greater personal inner growth.  Life is precious and I want to capture these moments.

I started this with an Ansel Adams quote and will also end with another...

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
