“Beautiful things don't ask for attention.”
A fantastic quote from James Thurber's "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty."
A good friend of mine saw a picture set that I recently took and asked, how do I get those colors?
The answer was simple. They find me. They do not need my attention, they need to be discovered.
We have this amazing Technicolor world that we live in that has amazing beauty around us. Like burying yourself in an encompassing novel, I have the ability to travel anywhere through the lens of a camera. I get to be an adventurer; an explorer seeing unmolested images for the first time. It makes you wonder if others have had the same thought.
Since it's inception in the mid-1800's, of the evolution of the photograph has shaped reality and captured it. I stood in awe of Ansel Adams' eloquent contrast of black and white. It was not a picture. It was art. This is why I really consider myself a bit more of a Digital Artist than a simple photographer.
I am an explorer. I am an adventurer. I am an artist.
A Walter Mitty I am not.
