“The meaning of life is to see.” ~ Hui Neng, 13th century monastic
The quote above has been a favorite of mine for some time now. As a photographer and a human being, my goal is to see reality as it is, with as few preconceived notions as possible.
What I have found is that there are always new and surprising ways to see an object, a person, or a situation – and often, there is more beauty present than we ever imagined.
There’s a place I love to go with my daughter - it’s usually very green there and full of fresh air and gentle breezes. I grew up there, riding horses, walking through paths and hiking around a small stream that flows through the mountain. I love this place. I love how beautiful it feels and smells. I love what it reminds me of and I know I can go there any time to find grace.
It’s my paradise.
