I think the first time I realized that I took a photograph instead of a snapshot was after a day outing with our, then toddler daughter, to a State Park beach. This was not a beach of glistening sunbathers in sometimes awkward looking swimsuits. This was a beach of gentle windswept sand dunes and majestic deep blue skies, with bleached gray driftwood logs scattered upon the sand. Those logs providing a place to sit and watch the beautiful gray-green water lap the pebbled shore.
What drew me to those photos once they came back from the developer, was the color. The intoxicating colors of nature. There I have said it, what I love about photography is color; bright colors, soft colors, black and white and my new favorite sepia, I LOVE them all.
