I love photography because you can see a scene from a distance your instincts tell you to pick up the camera. The light is beautiful, figures are dotting the distance you can’t exactly see all the details but your gut tells you to shoot, a rare alignment is coming together, something is definitely happening. You have no control other than to press that shutter and when you look at the finished results you understand why we capture the lives and times in which we live. Over a hundred fifty years after the mediums discovery we’re still in awe.
