Art nourishes the soul and stimulates imagination & thought. It helps us see the world from a different perspective or context. The philosopher Marcel Proust said, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” So true. We all know the planet we live on is such an incredible place, full of endless mystery and wonder. I’m lucky to witness this beauty first hand. Capturing this vignette through the lens and finessing it into my vision and sharing it with others is my passion. Focusing on the beauty around us helps us cope with life’s dark side. It’s an escape. As philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche said, “We have art so that we shall not die of reality.”
