There is beauty in everything if you slow down long enough to notice

My mentor initially labelled me a lazy photographer.  He said " If you take pictures from the parking lot, you will have the same picture as every other tourist".   This advice sunk in and formed a mentality that would change my life. I began to understand his words and see that I wasn't taking a picture, but instead creating an image that tells a story.   It's no longer about the image I take away, instead it's the experience of being in a particular place at the right time and capturing that moment.  Im always prepared to come home with nothing more than the experience of simply being there.
