The pursuit of photography is a perfect blend of art and science, geared towards and expressed through passion. It is as much about capturing the world around oneself as it is the world within, depicting innermost feelings through the lens of a camera. A photographer sees the world through a unique perspective, and finds beauty and emotion in the most mundane activities, the plainest sites.
