Life, like photography, is a series of moments which capture our attention.
These moments seduce us out of our normal routine, tantalizing our senses. For a brief pause in time, the stars align perfectly and a once in a million shot presents itself to our eyes, to our experience alone. We become a privileged private audience, beholding the magic and the mystery of the universe unfolding before us.
Finding the shot is as important to photography as it is to our everyday experience.
When a camera is in our hands the eye becomes sharp, tracking across people and places for the perfect way to portray the beauty that we behold. We are charged with finding the best way to translate what we see, opening to the new ways that we can decipher the language that surrounds us.
Life is much the same way, offering us the opportunity to look past the mundane and into the beauty that the world has to offer. It whispers to find the shot, find what is calling to our soul and move towards the expression of it. Though sometimes harder than others, we are tasked with opening our eyes in order to see the best way towards this that we desire.
Look for the shot and take it.
Go after what you want. Take the risk. In life, love, and photography.
