One of the things I love about photography is how it lets me show others what _I_ see. It lets you inside my eye to see the world through my own unique 'lens', pardon the pun. I see such beauty around me all the time. I have always noticed the details and photographed them. I look for them. I appreciate them. I seek them. One of my hopes with sharing my work online for the world to see is that hopefully one person is affected and motivated to see the beauty and details of their world.
But creatures... I notice details about people and about places. But I don't necessarily notice creatures. Something the Buddy has taught me is that if I only but look, and notice, the creatures are all around us. So often we just hurry and trudge through life, our landscape, and never notice all the untamed wild life coexisting with us.
We spent the last week in my favorite place -- Topsail Island, North Carolina. The weather was glorious - absolutely glorious. But not a day went by that the Buddy didn't find creatures. I would have said they flock to him - and yes, no matter WHERE we go, public or remote, we find them. But I really think that just as my eye is irretrievably set to see beauty and details, his eye is irretrievably set to notice the life that goes on around him.
We find this, because we seek it.
I believe I will start a new little personal project for him - The Creature Project.
