Perception

People tend to look at me funny sometimes when I whip out my camera to take a photo of something weird that they would have never taken a photo of or if I contort in a strange angle or lay down on the floor to get that shot perfect shot. I generally hear “What in the world are you taking a photo of THAT for?”. I guess I just love to make something beautiful that we walk by every single day. I love to show something that you see all the time and make it unique. I see things as an artist, everything is an interesting subject. A mushroom growing at an unexpected angle in a shaft of light, a piece of gum on the bottom of a chair, a rusted out tire rim or a leaf looking sad; I see these as something MORE than just an everyday object. I also just happen to love photos taken at unexpected angles, angles that most people don’t look or photo things at. I particularly adore angles from really high up or down low, and lately I have loved everything that is close up. When the light is right, which it often is in LALA Land, all I want to do is forget the bustle of city life around me and appreciate the different ways of looking at ordinary things.

Yes, I do have an Amazing and talented daughter. She's kind of always been creative - even as a very young child. She had a style of her own and has NEVER been afraid of what OTHERS might think of a new idea or fashion statement. I love that about you!
