Get in the Car & Drive

 

Edge of Niagara Falls

It’s just one of those days you get in your car and drive. Sometimes we just need to step away from whatever may be happening in our lives and escape for just a moment. I think everybody does at some point. This was one of those days. I drove all night just so I could be somewhere that I have never been before; just so I could see something that I have never seen before. When I arrived to Niagara Falls, Canada, I did not know what to expect nor did I have any expectations. But when I walked down to the falls, I couldn’t help but smile. The smell in the air, the mist hitting my face as I walked closer, and the sound of the crashing water was music to my ears. It was perfect. I couldn’t help but to just stand there and stare. It was beautiful. A moment I will never forget. This was just one of those days I got in my car and drove… drove to Niagara Falls.

Waiting

Michigan Sunset

Waiting. There are so many times that I go to a specific location and wait and wait and wait for that perfect shot. Knowing in my head exactly what it should look like and feel like. Like this time, and many others, that moment never came. It wasn’t until I got home and looked through what I took that I found exactly what I was waiting for. There has been a handful of times in my life that I’ve had this perfect vision, this perfect ideal but never saw it. But maybe, if I looked just a little bit closer, a little bit harder, I would have found it right in front of my eyes. Sometimes you shouldn’t wait.

Blue View

Chicago Abstract Architecture Photography

I never get tired of that blue view… The best part about abstract photography is that there are no rules. I love being able to transform ordinary scenes that I walk by everyday and turn them into an unordinary scenes. Removing the context behind an image to the point that you lose what it is, keeps me knowing that things aren’t always how they appear. Sometimes you just have to look at it in a different perspective.
