I wish my eyes could take photographs
The world is a beautiful place. We are all interesting, unique, and despite our differences in belief, life-choices and skin colour, we are heart-warmingly similar. There is beauty everywhere, and in everyone.
I see this beauty, this similarity and uniqueness, in everyone I meet, and everywhere I go. Unfortunately, people often don’t see it themselves, perhaps they are too close, or too involved, to see themselves as the world sees them. We all have a tendency to be our own worst critics.
When I was younger, I would often find myself thinking “I wish I could show you, I wish my eyes could take photographs.”
I can’t draw, I can’t paint. But I can make beautiful photographs, and I can show you yourself, and the world, as I see it.
