A Moment in Time

beachfunFBWhy do I take pictures?

To celebrate life that is happening right now

To appreciate the beauty that is all around me

To look closer at the detail of every day

To show beauty, love and hope

To tell a story that will be remembered

To capture a moment in time

“The purpose of art is not to send us to an alternative world, but rather to return us, even as our vision has been renewed, to the realm of the ordinary.  We don’t have to go out and try and take beautiful photos.  We simply need to pay attention and foster a different kind of seeing. ”                                          Eyes of the Heart by Christine Valters Paintner

  1. What a powerful quote and picture to go along with it. The sand in the air, each child in a different motion, playing uninhibited…Love it!!
