People ask why I take so many photos. I want to capture beauty seen through my eyes and relive moments that I could have otherwise forgotten. A photo has the power to evoke so much emotion because of its ability to bring us back to a feeling that can only be recreated in our minds. Memories are intangible; happiness felt by cherished times spent with others, sadness for those who no longer are by our sides and indescribable feelings brought on by our unique set of experiences which a photograph brings to life again. The days keep moving forward, but a photograph freezes time so that we can remember.
