The downside to living 4 blocks from the beach is that I now have a longer commute. However, I decided to look at the upside and “magically” I now finally have time to catch up on my reading list. In the past couple weeks I have finished a couple of books (definitely recommend “Let My People Go Surfing” by Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia) and finally have started to tackle my back issues of the magazine Outside Photographer.

As I was on my way  into work this morning, I was reading an article called “What is photography for you?” The author, Dewitt Jones, describes that for him, photography is a spiritual practice. Dewitt writes, “It’s a discipline that connects me more closely to the core of the universe and the core of my own being. It opens my eyes and, in doing so, allows my heart and soul to open as well.”

I instantly connected to what Jones was eloquently describing about his connection with photography. I then took a moment to reflect  on my experience behind the camera. As I described in my post “Hidden Cove Camp“, from a very young age, photography and photographs mesmerize me. The world around me is transformed when I look through the viewfinder and in my photographs I try to capture these settings in a unique perspective.

So I thought I would share some of my unique perspective tonight. Happy Friday y’all!!!!
