I’ve always been drawn to photography over other visual arts. Some think photography is unimaginative because you can’t create a photograph out of nothingness, as you can with a blank canvas and pastels or watercolors. But there is something magical about photography: it requires that we find the beauty that already exists in the world and capture it. We create with what we are already given. It is an art of gratitude.
Today I want to encourage you to look through your photographs and where can you add your words and thoughts to a picture and turn it into a priceless portion of your own unique memoir.
