“We all live under the same sky, but we don’t see the same light,” read the red words neatly type on the paper within one of my favorite fortune cookies.
I don’t see the same light.
Born and raised in the ‘suburbs’ of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania (yes, the groundhog…..) I learned at a young age to use my imagination and, with the influence of artistic family members, how to harness that creativity. I took my creativity to the viewfinder. Some 30, 000 photographs later and the acquisition of my first dSLR in December, I’m still learning. Learning to how to see the world in new ways. Learning how to better capture movement, color, pattern, emotion, and time. Learning how to recognize the beautiful and the ugly.
Sometime’s it involves traveling alone, out of a backpack for 10 days, lying facedown on a filthy sidewalk, sprinting to the coast for a 5:45 a.m. sunrise, enduring 120 degree heat indices, or enduring windburn because you failed to remember gloves.
I want to see the world in a different light. That’s what makes my photography and adventure.
