As the philosopher Maurice Proust once said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
I've always felt the world looks more beautiful through the lens than in reality. The art of photography affords me the luxury of capturing the beauty around me and showcasing it for others to see. Receiving the 2013 Vincent Versace Award for Photographic Excellence for "FLOATING BEAUTY" helped affirm my efforts and encouraged me to continue this wonderful art form.
