last saturday morning, a group of local photographers went to an area of town most of us had never spent much time in. in fact, most of us had never even driven through the area, which really is a shame, because it's so rich in character. we traveled up and down the area for about two hours. walking the sidewalk has a wonderful way of making you look at details, material and textures, the little things impossible to notice while zipping along our busy lives fueled by the automobile. having a camera with you while walking only magnifies this whole experience.
i'm always amazed at the beauty one can find in just about anything...sometimes you just have to slow down....and open your eyes.
