Foggy Dubai

(Foggy Dubai)

The above picture inspires me and expresses better than my words can why I love photography.

First, it illuminates a real scene in a way that 99.9% of the population would never be able to experience without this photo.

Second, you can form a photograph in a way that hides some of the “nastier” or more unseemly elements of reality and thereby magnify it’s beauty.  It’s a little like looking at others as they can be, not as they sometimes actually are.

Simply, I love photography because of it’s power to inspire and comfort the mind.  And someday, I hope to create an image or two that can do that.
