Richmond was a hidden gem for me. The first time I captured it, I was with friend who promised me an amazing view. She took me to the very top of a hill, it felt like a small mountain, we walked and we walked, which if I'm being honest was hard work. It was worth the climb, when I turned and looked down over what seemed like one thousand miles of beauty beneath my feet, I was mesmerized by what I was seeing. Here are some of those photos.
Everyday our paths cross with so many people. Some we connect with, through our eyes or a simple smile, others we simply pass without any words, no contact made. I like to capture the presence of people in my photos, to me it gives meaning and feelings to my image.
All living things have a place in day to day life, flowers are one of them. They work so hard the grow, battling with adverse weather conditions, for weeks, for months, just for that one moment when they will blossom and show their true beauty. When they get to show their true potential, offering natures sweetness to fluttering butterflies and buzzing bees, offering their beauty to you and I.
life through a fish eye
The thing I like the most about fish eye photography is that what you think you’ve seen, isn’t always what you’re actually seeing. While capturing photos with this particular lens I try to achieve two things a good level of distortion and maybe an illusion.
