I love wide open landscapes…sweeping vistas…big bold skies. Just look at most of my photographs if you doubt me. I’m always taken in by the grandeur before me. But, just like in life, you can’t always focus on the big picture. The small details, the simple pleasures, fill in the space between life’s big moments and seem to make it all more rewarding. I am trying to apply the same to my photography. Slow up and look down, look up close, see the “small picture.” It forces you to see and appreciate your surroundings in a whole new way.
