To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them. -Elliott Erwitt
find life experiences and swallow them whole. travel. meet many people. go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. try everything. exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life. - lawrence k. fish
Hi there, brave reader...I’m Jim - traveler, photographer, wanderlust sufferer. Writer, poet, blogger. I take photos, share photos, and write about things that interest me. I feel like this blog resides at the intersection of travel and photography, of discovery and inspiration.
My photographic preferences are landscapes and cityscapes, and my photographic style is expressive and colorful - that’s just how I see the world. My camera is my accomplice and my co-conspirator. It compels me to get out the door and go see something. It doesn’t matter what the result is, it just matters that I got up, went out, and tried it. That’s an accomplishment some days.
My hope is to motivate people to travel and take photographs; to inspire creativity in others by sharing what I create, how I create it, and even what I use to create it with. I hope to inspire people to go explore someplace new, to just get up and give it all a try.
So go see something new. Try something different. Travel. Take a photo. It doesn’t even have to be a good photo. Just take it. Create something. There’s a kind of magic that happens when you do.
We have a beautiful world on our hands, and it’s so worth going to see it.
