Blog Guelph: Fresh Eyes

Good Morning!

Looking through the images in the Guelph Flickr groups, sometimes there is a style that catches my eye. I am compelled to spend time and visit, slowly sipping my coffee and looking at that particular photographer's world view through their lens. Today's photographer is someone who has fresh and open eyes to all in her environment. Sadie uses both film and digital to express what she sees and documents events with great clarity.

In the age of digital, when people capture every moment of excitement using cameras and cell phones, I think they are missing being in the moment of the event. By using film and shooting select snippets of her life, Sadie is able to capture meaningful moments. Decades from now, she will be able to pull out the photographs and negatives and reminisce. I am not so sure we will be able to do that with the plethora of digital images taken today.

Taking a cue from Sadie's images, I too will try to be more in the moment, more contemplative before I press the shutter. Fancy giving it a try too?
