Magic of photography

It never ceases to amaze me, how some individuals can point a camera at anything, be it scrap metal or rotting heaps of compost, and make the images alluring, evocative. Yet, the innate beauty of those mundane scenes eludes the untrained eye, though we encounter them daily, and fail to grace them with a second glance.

Somehow, photographers manage to glean the shining soul of what mere mortals believe to be spent or dead. It’s a wonderful gift, to be able to bring to life that which has been doomed.
