Photography teaches us to see

Dorothea Lange quotequoted in the Los Angeles Times, 13 August 1978

It’s certainly true that I look at the world differently since embracing photography. It’s helped me see the extraordinary in ordinary, everyday things.

It seems that as I look around through my mental viewfinder, there’s always an image just waiting to be captured, that beauty is everywhere – from the life story written on a human face, to a discarded rusty can.

There’s no doubt that photography enriches my life experience.

As Dorothea Lange also said,

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.

So what about you – how has photography’s ability to hold life still influenced the way you see the world?

    • Yes – and how fortunate to experience that heightened awareness, don’t you think? I’m often in awe of the sky, but when I point it out to others for their viewing pleasure, it’s not uncommon for them to be less than impressed! They’re missing out, I think – it’s good for the soul to appreciate everyday marvels like the sky… šŸ™‚
      Best wishes,

    • Indeed. Thanks so much for your impressions, Alessandro – I appreciate you taking the time to view and comment…
