Welcome to LightStreams
Life is busy and we so easily miss
the beauty where we are.
I hope you enjoy exploring these pictures
as much as I enjoyed finding them.
Right where you are now.
Every journey we begin, every action we take, every word we speak, every thought we entertain, all have one thing in common: they happen “Here”.
What does “Here” look like? Is it so familiar that we no longer see it? Do we assume it’s so boring that it’s not worth attention? Are we too busy to stop and enjoy it?
Noticing what is present here and now, enriches all those "there and then" experiences yet to come. For what is travel but temporary relocation to a new here and now?
What is right here, in front of you?
How does it look at this moment?
In this light?
At this time of year?
From this point of view?
Why has it caught your attention?
When I get behind my camera, time disappears. As I pay closer attention to my surroundings, I become absorbed in what I find.
I am not looking for interesting places to go. I am simply looking for things that spark interest, even in the most unlikely of places - like this condensation inside a bottle in a kerbside recycling box on a sunny morning. Life and beauty so often lurk just beyond the first glance.
As I focus, the “ordinary” becomes transformed, revealing “extraordinary” life within.
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare? W.H. Davies
