"I think what I like best about photography is that it's a way to show what *you* see, your own unique vision of your world, and to hone that vision until you are more observant and more aware of the beauty and intricacy of the things too many of us overlook on a day to day basis. Each of us sees the same things differently, and a photograph says a lot about the photographer. A photograph tells what sort of things a photographer notices, shows what things are beautiful or important to her, conveys her unique perspective on each object and on the greater world, and in each face or flower or landscape we see not just the subject of the photo but a slice of the photographer's soul."
After soaking in what Jenni wrote, and yes, I read it more than once to absorb the totality...I found myself shaking my head in agreement. YES!! This is why I love photography and photographs. I can take what is inside my brain and transverse it into something tangible. There really are no limits as to what can be achieved through photography.
Jenni was one of the first bloggers to expose me to high quality photographs, the likes of which I had never seen before. I felt connected to her view. I enjoy the things she loves to shoot. I especially love it when she goes out and about on her beloved Kansas prairies and captures it's varying beauty. Her work is amazing.
I have got a few other favorite photo bloggers now and I love and appreciate each of their individual work. Some like hard lines and gutsy shots...some like heavenly, soft toned nature captures...and some provide me with stink'n cute baby toes for me to salivate over. There are even those that give me a daily dose of farm and country life...then there's those foodie photographers. Well, you should know who I feel about them. Each one is equally special to me. I hope to be able to feature some of my personal favorites in the future, not just to provide them exposure in the blogging world, but to document why their blog keeps beckoning me back.
I know there's a whole new world out there for me with my camera. I am enjoying the learning process and am taking the time to grow. I believe that if we stop seeking knowledge and personal growth than we become stagnant and stop living life. There's absolutely no way I am about to do that. You? What do you see through your lense?
This is Home Girl and I am truly in love...
