When I walk around with my camera in my hands the whole world looks different. I notice the tiniest details. The strange angles. The hidden shadows. When I look through the viewfinder the too big world becomes manageable. Magical. I can take a moment in time and make it last forever.

These days we spend so much energy in our journeys from here to there distracting ourselves (cell, mp3, laptop) that we miss the little things. We miss being in and reacting to the present.

Now more than ever it is the task of the photographer to capture the present for everyone that missed it the first time around. Fresh/frozen for those that don't live near the water.
