A photographers sees and creates art

Photography is an art, a photographer has to have the ability to see an object, scenery or any simple thing, that the average person would take for granted, and create art with his/her photography skills. A photographer with this skill knows that no special camera is required to take a great photo – it can be a simple disposable camera. 

I can remember blogging about running out of ideas of what to take pictures and a fellow blogger advised me that there are always something to take pictures of - right in our homes, we just have to be very observant. I followed her suggestion and went to my bathroom. I took some pictures of my shower with the water flowing very slowly. I got beautiful pictures. I submitted one of these pictures to a local online newspapers and it was selected as Photo Of The Day! I was elated. 

On a beautiful day my husband and I went to the beach and as I entered the water, I noticed this man holding a very young baby. I am sure the baby was not older than 6-8 weeks old. Father and daughter. It was a beautiful sight and I told my husband that I should have had my camera. I just saw beauty. The baby’s back was to her father and she was facing me. The baby looked happy just being in the warmth of her daddy’s arms and the daddy looked like a proud father. It is instances like this that I see art, creativity. 

That same day, my husband and I went walking on the beach and we stopped for a moment. He stood on a rock as I looked back at him. Again I saw a sight for a photograph. It is times like these that I am disappointed that I did not have my camera with me.

There was another occasion I was taking some photos at Trellis Bay, Beef Island, during my lunch hour and I saw this old truck at the dumpster. It was only the frame of the truck and basically junk inside the vehicle. As soon as I saw this old truck, I saw art, I knew what I was going to do with the photo when I downloaded it onto my computer. This is the result.

With that being said, I take this opportunity to thank you for visiting this website. Photography has been my passion for years and it is my intentions are to showcase my photos and at the same time share some of my knowledge that I have acquired.

Photography Quote
“Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.” Ansel Adams
While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see. ~Dorothea Lange
I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it. ~Author Unknown
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. ~Ansel Adams
There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera. And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed. Don't be bitter because you can't record it. Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson
All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget. In this - as in other ways - they are the opposite of paintings. Paintings record what the painter remembers. Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.
~John Berger
