What Photography Really Produces

The print isn’t the end product of your photography. Neither is the screen.

The end product is the joy of being present when photographing.

Photography is a rare deep dive into our own brains. It’s an exploration of what we perceive in nature, people, civilization or the lack of it. And it’s all happening in real time.

It’s an appreciation of light, patterns and texture, the things we tend to ignore in our daily lives for what’s more urgent.

It’s keeping a lot of us sane. It’s even making some of us happy.

Physical and digital things come and go. They’re easily forgotten. As are we.

The only thing that lasts is our awareness of the world around us.

Even that will end some day. But what a way to spend a life.
