Photography makes me more aware of my environment. It helps me to see things I would not have noticed otherwise. When I walk in familiar places, I discover the unfamiliar. I try to see things in a unique way. I try to make the ordinary look extraordinary. It gives me great satisfaction when I look at something from a new angle as if I had seen it for the first time. As I discover the world around me through photography, it allows me to be present in the moment.
