“I walk, I look, I see, I stop, I photograph.”Leon Levinstein
I like to take pictures. I am a threat to get on one knee to achieve what I believe to be a perfect frame, stand in the street to capture the exact details of a beckoning skyscraper, or hold up hiking trails’ foot traffic to snap pictures of anything from a resting bird, a trickling creek, or Zeke’s muddy paws. Road signs, murals, sunsets, ocean waves and sunrises are some of my favorite photos to lock in time as well. Photography increases my situational awareness – offering me yet another reason why I should practice gratitude, humility, and optimism.
Photography allows me to (1) become a better pictorial storyteller in a way unique to my interests and experiences; (2) create gifts of great memories and important achievements that keep-on giving and (3) view the world more mindfully given I am seeking moments to capture.
