Beauty and the Perspective

A friend of mine was helping me see the bigger picture the other day and I ended up focusing more on her, changing my perspective and just taking deep breaths. Life can get a little out of hand but it's nice to see the simplicity and the beauty in it that you didn't know was there. She brings laughter and friendship into my life, not only unending wisdom, so turn to someone in your life and change your perspective, you may see more beauty there than you thought before. -A.Z.
A nice little rain came and went in California, leaving it a little more green than before. -A.Z.

Winning Picture

I never got to show you guys this; this shot is the one I recently one third place with at the TJCEA convention. The competition was very intense and there were lots of skilled competitors, I was very honored to win the feature photography award. Not too shabby, huh? -A.Z.

Floating Factory

 One of my favorite shots from my recent voyage... -A.Z.

Today was one of those days where everything seems to challenge you and you're constantly in your head, not in reality, because you can hold onto yourself more easily when in your own head. These shots remind me of being in my own head, especially the last one, I could have sat on that river bank all day and looked at the still water and the growing mountain.  -A.Z.

           Just some of the shots I took in Washington and Oregon, the weather gave me fantastic lighting but also such a haunting feeling. I loved capturing the stillness and while I captured each shot I felt very slow and very observant of all things cold and eerie; an amazing experience.     -A.Z.

                     Hello there people of earth and beyond, I'm sorry I have not been posting as often as I would like but I am again present! I recently went on an lens opening trip to check out colleges and the amazing cities of Seattle and Portland, quite a trip and I got to take some amazing photos! So, sit back, keep your arms and legs within reaching distance of your computer and enjoy the view! Thanks! A.Z.

Shining Light on the Subject

I have needed a little clarity lately, dusting away a few things I would have rather kept buried but it turned out shining the light on the subject was exactly what I needed. Bringing the light to the things that hide in the shadows is a new curiosity of mine...
