Besides writing, my other passion is photography. Anyone that knows me, knows I have a slight obsession with taking pictures. I can not just take one picture I need a whole series.
I never use to be into photography. I think one reason why I am now fascinated with it is because of my past. I battled severe depression a few years ago and saw absolutely no good or beauty in the world. Once my eyes opened and the darkness lifted, I saw beauty was all around us. For this reason, I think every beautiful moment in life should be captured on film to share with others, who may not see it themselves.
Nature fascinates me because it offers so much beauty. I could spend all day taking pictures of the clouds or birds in the sky. Clouds are by far my biggest joy to photograph because they are effortlessly beautiful and constantly changing. The way different lights affects them or breezes in the sky move them truly amazes me. One cloud is never the same as another.
Although many people say I have an obsession with taking pictures, I think otherwise. True, I may get a little excessive with it at times but how can I let all these wonderful moments in time slip by and not allow others to see the beauty I saw?
