“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and had it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it move again, since is it life ”
While going through my archives in the past couple of days, I have noticed that one of my passions is taking pictures. Whether using a point and shoot camera, SLR, DLSR or just the mere camera from my cellphone, photography is a way of expression when words fail me. Something I absolutely love about taking photos is the way it alters life. The process itself gives me serenity, a chance to clear my mind and a sense of perspective.
A vivid memory of the day I got hooked in photography plays in my head from time to time. Going back to how I felt at that moment to how far I have come in my life since that memory was pretty amazing. I am grateful that I made it this far and how my life continues to unfold before my eyes. There is an inherent stillness in capturing photos and an unspeakable joy looking at it. That very moment you captured in a creative fraction of second creates a hundred of stories. It is like recording a gamut of feelings and finding something interesting and special in ordinary things, places and people.
Peace, hope and joy permeated my thoughts whenever I take photos.
Indeed, it is love at first click! ♥
