Life’s schedule seems to take up all of our visual time, we are so busy going to or coming from, that for the most part we fail to see what is right before us. That was me before I took up photography – life just kept rolling by and I didn’t see what was right before me …. life… colours … a smile from a passer-by, a flower wisping back and forth in the wind or a seagull flying away to find its next treat. When a picture is taken, we can see what we didn’t, and in a lot of cases should have. If we take away all of the distractions and really look, all the beauty of life is right before us. It didn’t just magically happen – it was there all the time.
