A Commitment

Butterflies fluttering together in gravel.

Nature is full of mysteries and photographers are committed to witnessing these mysteries then sharing them with others through their art.

This is a photo taken early this spring. I hope to get a chance to research this behaviour.

We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.
-Maya Angelou

Cows are extremely curious animals. When we approach cows, they will advance towards us, showing unusual interest. This cow was even more curious than the others and tried to push her way towards me as I took her photo.

Shadow to conceal ID

When you are taking photos, it is important to consider others people’s privacy. In this case, I decided to go with a shadow to hide this young man’s ID as I felt it actually added to the photo.

Nature is all around us creating art

We wouldn’t think of an opportunity to photograph nature while in the city but here the freeze and melt of the snow created this most interesting pattern on the side of an industrial building in the city.

The travel photographer who can’t travel.

As traveling becomes ever more expensive, some of us need to find inspiration in our back yards. Although we hope to save enough money to visit beautiful places in the future, we are learning to hone our skills right here at home.

Though we travel the world over to find beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. Ralph Waldo Emerson
