From the age of eight, when I received my first camera, I have been looking at the world through a lens. My interest in photography began with snapshots of my life – family, friends, travels, my children, the milestones they achieved, the adventures they embarked upon. As my children became less will subjects, my attention focused on my environment, the obvious and the less so.
I find beauty in objects often overlooked, a doorknocker, a window frame, a weed at the side of the road, a dilapidated boat.
The philosophy to “stop and smell the roses” is one we should all embrace. I strive, through art, to encourage one to take that moment.
