When you are a photographer, it changes how you look at the world. You can look at something straight on, seeing it for what it is. Then you look beyond it, seeing it within the context of its background. And then, you look at it with a certain intimacy, seeing the details and inner character. And if you’re lucky, you can capture something beautiful in all three views. I know there are more ways of looking at a scene or a thing, but these are the first things that come to mind.
