Natural beauty is all around us. I like to look for patterns in nature and turn them into something unique. If I see something that catches my eye and I’m always pleasantly surprised by what I do see – I will be composing the photograph in my mind way before I take it. It may sound pretentious or arty, but a lot of my photographs take themselves. Like leaves on the sidewalk after the rain that look like dancing stars to me. Or the way colorful Autumn leaves become a beautiful potpourri.
