Knowing Where To Stand

Ansel Adams is credited with saying, “A good photograph is knowing where to stand.”  Valid point, but it is also important to be aware of what you are seeing in the place you are standing.  I find that when I am cognizant of my surroundings, no matter where I’m standing, I will see deeper and more thoroughly.  It is in these moments of seeing that I discover art that is not of human making, but is a combination of light and form coming together to create something greater than the individual components.  When that happens, I know that I need to be fearless in capturing the vision in front of me, even when the place I’m standing is in the shower.
