Now he comes back to share with us his personal feelings about photography which may be also worthy photographic experience for us.
Here is his essay:
_ Photography for me is much more than the act of "taking pictures". I use photography as a way of literally opening my eyes to the surrounding world... and that particular perspective carries over to even when I'm not photographing...
_ So often we either live in the future or live in the past ... that is to say, we're either worrying about what comes next or we're re-living trivial moments out of the past. Consequently, we're blind to what's happening around us!
_ The act of photographing forces you to live in the present and concentrate on "the here-and-now"..., a very good thing in and of itself... Others achieve this through meditation and religion....Photography is a way of achieving this state of mind... and be creative at the same time... a great "two-fer"!
