35mm | Pure Essence

This journey with The Classic Frame really came home to me this morning. As I looked at my simple elegant camera, I saw the pure essence of my identity.

The pure essence of my life is the happiness I can create for myself with a Camera, a good Book and my ever faithful Deck of Cards.

These are the tools of my life, my craft and my self-expression.

To see beauty in the everyday moments.

To acknowledge others in 35mm.

To experience a playfull gesture.

To experience the magic of light in the shadows - its all magical heaven to me.

The rhythm of life on the streets is a constant ebb and flow of energy, expression and stillness.

This pure essence would have been difficult for me to appreciate if I didn’t have a Camera in my hand.

My Camera has forced me to be still in the chaos of it all and just be present.

Thanks for reading.

“When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness. When things feel extraordinary, strive for ordinary. When the surface is wavy, dive deeper for quieter waters”.
