DescriptionI had the idea one morning to take my camera along as I walked to the mailbox so I could show all my friends & family what every day life was like here on our mountain hideway. While on my way this little chipmunk came out of his hole in our stone wall to see what I was up to and I quickly snapped a few photos.
Alesia Kaye, Coos County, NH Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement Photography gives us the opportunity to actually "capture a moment in time". It is this unique quality that allows each of us to peer a little longer and notice details that we maybe overlook in our daily lives.
The color of a flower, the detail of a single blade of grass or sunsets that pass too quickly - each can been captured in their frozen moment in time via a photograph.
My goal is simply to recognize and notice the beauty in our everyday world. To stop and take a moment to realize that I am constantly surrounded by beautiful images if I only can learn to notice them and let them be a part of my life.
