The image is a way to speak. One of the more powerful uses of creativity is to use it as a way to tell. It is a language not too different from the written word. Photography is a creative process that can elevate the mind.
You have a story that you can tell. It is a story waiting for you to express in your own voice and in your own way. It takes time and practice and the right frame of mind. But that is a goal that can lead to seeing and ultimately to understanding.
Somewhere along the line, the world seems to have succumbed to the need for exaggeration in everything we do. ………Photography opens the door for seeing the world as it really exists. It allows us to realize the good as well as the bad.
This quote has less to do with the landscape and more to do with really seeing anything. In the act of photographing, we are showing ourselves to the world. We are sharing what we see and what we care about.
