Looking Back, Looking Forward

Though the nature of photography implies
that we can capture a moment in time,
I am quite certain that we canít.
Events and moments canít be held or duplicated accurately.
I attempt to capture a perspective with my photos.
Perspective is ever changing
but this is the beauty of it to me.
Can I really appreciate how many different perspectives
there are in the world, in myself?
The Buddha discovered that we suffer
when the mind gets fixed with one view, one perspective.
My photos were taken during my travels in the last two years.
I enjoy travel for the same reason I enjoy photography,
it helps me to see the beauty of different perspectives.
