I have always enjoyed taking pictures but when I started serious travel four years ago, photography became a passion. Photography is not only my creative outlet, it makes me happy. It has changed the way I look at the world: I take notice of light falling, see details once missed and small gestures that used to go unnoticed. Although taking pictures is often a solitary pursuit, my camera encourages me to introduce myself to strangers and provides me access to new cultures. The pretense of taking a picture has very often been the preface to a new experience and/or wonderful adventure. It can only get better.
