I can't help myself.
My photos are always taken with a view to create - (something) and it becomes a bit of an obsession.
Will I put it into thread form?
Will I use it for decoration in the house, or sometimes, I just plain like the feel of the image presented.
I combine color and form, perspective and presence in my head at a fast rate and then snap with the camera, the heart beats a little faster and its an exciting experience.
Its not new, I've composed images all my life, however with the new cameras and computers you can change the image to fit the mood and genre you enjoy.
A swamp tour was high on our list during our stay here and our day was spent amongst spectacular scenery. Not only are they beautiful, but the swamplands are also a functional component of Louisiana's environment. Along with its abundance of animals and fish, the basin produces thousands of pounds of vegetation yearly.
Its not the easiest place to compose a picture because it was quite dark but I shot a lot of film and captured as much as I could.
