Part of the purpose of my photo-taking is to remind myself of the moment I’m in. Its so easy to wonder about “what will happen next?” on a constant basis. I think we all feel pushed to get to the next thing (physical or conceptual) so much that we aren't stopping to see where we are currently. This is part of why I enjoy subjects that are easy to pass by. Paying attention and seeking them out is meditation, and I believe the act in itself is the reward. Its a reminder to be conscious of the little things. The fact that I can translate these meditations into real works of art for others viewing/questioning means everything to me.
