I have long taken photographs when traveling, as a way to make sense of a new place. Walking and observing, I notice elements that are often overlooked. My eye is first drawn to the novelties that make travel delightful. As I continue to see and absorb, the beauty I find in the smaller details connects me to unnamed makers of beautiful objects or to the natural world.
Now that I am a parent, I usually work within a much smaller radius, most often in nature and close to home. This shift was born of necessity, but I have come to realize that the same opportunities for wonder and connection are available everywhere.
