Beauty is all around us. The question is whether or not one sees it. What draws me to photography the most is that it helps me to see the beauty in things around me that I might not ordinarily take the time to see. The beauty of a flower or sunset is obvious to most. But what about the beauty of winter frost on barbed wire fencing? How about a lonely tree captured against a backdrop of fog? Maybe an old outhouse still standing that represents another lifetime? Or the personality of a shy horse hiding behind a fence rail? These are things I find interesting. I enjoy shooting a variety of photos, but one of the things I like most is taking my camera and looking for something others might not notice until it is captured in a photo.
