An Appreciation for Big Cities
I never liked being in cities. For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to live far out in the country. No cares, no worries, no traffic. But that all changed when I fell in love with photography. Now I'm in love with them. Whether its Philadelphia, or some other city I get to visit to photograph clients, I love them. I love the lines. I love the atmosphere. I love the colors, the pace, the vibe. I love the buildings, the shadows, the architecture. I don't see cities as a mess of cars and people now, i see them as blank - or empty. A blank canvas. Open to however I want to view it. I see things with a lens permanently attached to my eye ... figuratively obviously. I see everything now as a photographer. And I've come to appreciate big cities.
I do however, still like living outside of them ; )
