I had a wonderful conversation with an artist friend this week about photography, the purpose, and what really drives me. Yes, there are times I get burnt out. There are times when I want to give up photography all together. But the people, the places, the beauty... That's what keeps me connected to my camera. I have the opportunity today to show you why you are beautiful. To let you see it through my eyes. And the world. This beautiful world we live in. Every day, I see the mountains, I see a new sky - cloudy, sunny, colorful, or dark is dismal. It's all beautiful. And those moments of reality - tears shed, a crying baby, a playing child, the sun rising over the mountain, or even simply the way the light shines on the leaves of the trees. Moments in weddings or families. Moments in events or activities. And moments of peace in nature.
Today, I am alive and that means I get to open my eyes and celebrate the beauty all around me. As a photographer, my job and my opportunity is to show the beauty in the world as I see it.
Through my eyes, my lens, here are a few examples of the beauty in Turks and Caicos (Caribbean). There's a story behind every moment, but today I just want to share the photos and let you see what you see.
