a camera can be...


***
a slide on a playground.
calling out to you like a child with desires to test gravity's truth.

daring you to try to let go and make something.

***
a musical instrument.
with the intricacies of notes that only a master can truly open up
but even a child attempts.

longing for you to make melodies.

***
new eyes to see.
like seeing the world for the first time with corrected vision.

giving off the hope that everything can look different.


***
a hand extended to others.
forming new relationships and connecting us to one another.

causing an honest look at our humanity.


***
a book of truth.
revealing the way we view life in this world.

asking us the important questions.

i deeply love participating in photography
~one of the most accessible forms of art~
everyman's art.

and i'm thankful for cameras and the many ways i've been drawn to them in my life.

i'm hoping you'll get out there and photograph something.

xo.
