From the moment I saw this image through the lens, even before I pressed the shutter, I knew that being ‘present’ to see the beauty that constantly surrounds us masquerading as the mundane was so much more important than whatever device we choose, no matter how capable, to capture these fleeting moments with. As a product of this epiphany I streamlined my camera bag for this season to assist me in focusing on the image, not the implement. The biggest gift photography gives to me is the constant encouragement to be present. -ELW
