Capturing the perfect moment in time
I feel as if I have been looking through a camera lense for as far back as I can remember. Always striving to capture a moment in time that I would never be able to relive. At first it was so I didn't forget that moment, the first laugh of my newborn babies, the stumble and fall as they learned to walk. The laughter during the holidays and the special family moments. And that was good.
As I grew up, I challenged myself to visualize each image as a framed piece of art. As the years passed, I realized that life gives you only fleeting moments with which to experience it. She can be stingy, so I have tried to live my life with the understanding that I may never return to that place or remake that special moment.
This insight served me well as I travelled. It forced me to slow down and look for the special moments. You know the ones, those unique instances that belong only to you.
As I have gotten older, this philosophy has taken on a deeper understanding of life. It's a time when you realize how temporary your life is, in the grand scheme of things.
With that, my eye sees things a bit differently now. An intention to capture those fleeting moments, conveyed in such a way that others can feel it as I did - the breath of the breeze, the rush of the waves or the calm of the moment.
I will continue to add new collections, so stay tuned and I hope you enjoy. Comments appreciated.
