Dear Photography 7/17/17

Dear Photography,

People who first decide to pick you up (photography) think its all sunflowers and daises. Besides being a father, you’re one of the hardest things I’ve ever done and I have accomplished so much with you as well. Yet, there’s so much more I need and want to learn. I find my self constantly thinking about you and wanting to grow and develop with you. You’ve been by my side since I was a boy, always there for those family vacations so I can look back on the memories. When I look back at those times I wish I would have taken you more seriously. I left you alone in the dark collecting dust, but later in life you helped me find my way out the dark. What can I say? You helped save my life during a dark time. I know there are many challenges ahead and I’m willing to face them to keep making beautiful art. I’m not the Picasso or DaVinci of my generation but that’s not what I’m after. We’re creating art for myself and whoever else wants to be captured by it. Keep helping me get to the next destination ahead. This is a letter to thank you for everything you have done for me thus far. There’s so much more I want to say but that can be written another day.

Photography is life
