I like art. (just joking) “Why are you here?” he asked one day. It was a simple question, but it made me think for a long time before I answered. Why am I always capturing photographs? Photography has given me an outlet to express myself and create something that can never be taken away from me. When I’m behind the lens, nothing else matters; time stops; and all cares go away. It’s as if the world ceases to exist and only I, my camera, and those within the viewfinder exist.
