The camera is an instrument that teaches people to see without a camera.
~ Dorothea Lange
When I started doing photography as a hobby, I soon realized that I was seeing the world in a way I hadn’t since childhood. Pausing to take the time to really notice and see has been the great gift of photography for me. I recently read a wonderful book called Adventures in Seeing by Kim Manley Ort that reminded me of the importance of all this.
As I approach the new year, I know there is no way I can predict what will happen in the world and in my life, but I do know that I want to be happy and present in my own life and with the people I love. I intend to slow down a bit, and take some photographs just for the joy of seeing.
Again- thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments this year. Whether photography is your hobby or not, take some time to stop and SEE- and perhaps take a photo! Best wishes for a new year filled with JOY!
