As a photographer traveling the world I am only a co-creator, capturing the beauty in a particular time and place; as I realize that each framed shot was already there, waiting melting, not yet frozen for the eyes of the beholders, but soon gone as nature and time melt away! Its beautify once free to fade but now caged on canvas. Beauty now begging to get out for the eye of the beholderÂ as a caged exotic Scarlet Macaw. So photographing people, places, animals, and events all over the world to me is extremely rewarding to share as time frozen on canvas freeing it to be stimulating as a design. So each piece of art can now only be copied the exact moment before the scene is gone melted by time!Â
AsÂ Charles Dickens writes...
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.... 'The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.'... Â Charles DickensÂ 1812-1870
