Let me introduce you to my best friend CONSTANTINE AUGUSTS. I lost my best friend a few years ago, but there isn’t a day I don’t think of my little guy.
I recently found this image of Constantine which was so dark you could barely make him out in the image. Over the last week I’ve been determined to save the image and I was able to come away with this sweet memory of my buddy.
Before I entered the world of photography, I realize I rarely slowed down long enough to appreciate the beauty around me, this is why I love getting into photography, you slow down and see the world around you. People, places and things start to take on another world to you and I’m finding that I’m actually connecting to my community and the people around me in ways I never have before. Photographing the beauty of what nature gives us is so rewarding. I love the lines, textures and range of colors nature gives us in her works of art.
It’s my goal in my photography to document people, places and nature, letting my camera capture what I see because I believe documenting what I see is in someway preserving a time in history. The above image I feel I’ve capture the beauty of the rose in its glory, because soon it will die and I will soon forget just how beautiful it was. Life in any form is so fragile and can be gone in a moment, memories fade and we wish we had something to remember what is close to us, so document what you see and hold on to your memories .
