We see life through the lenses of our experiences.
There have been three constants in my life: experiences, lenses, cameras.
A really bad case of conjunctivitus when I was seven left me wearing glasses ever since. All the drama that came with a lifetime of wearing glasses engendered a curiosity about lenses and a wonder at how different glasses and lens types drastically changed how I saw the world.
My father was a photo hobbyist, and growing up there were cameras and lenses around all the time. About the same time I got my first pair of glasses I started becoming aware of my fathers cameras. He had the coolest of cameras with their dials and switches - and lenses. The rush that would come from the instant of clicking the shutter and "capturing a moment" was intensified when I discovered that there were so many ways to "make a photograph." Being able to not only freeze a moment in time - but to be able to enhance the moment by using lenses and lens settings and different points of view was fascinating to me. I've been studying and playing with cameras and lenses ever since.
