the power of an image // Plate #1

It's said that the average human can see and process around 65 images a second.  These 65 single frames laced together form what we visually conceive as the world around us.   But how do we choose a single frame within all those perceivable?  One that can stand alone and speak on behalf of all the rest that have come and gone as quickly and silently.  In essence, to single out one frame is to set it apart, making it special, unique.  As a photographer, I constantly think about the moments both in front of my lens and those passing me by just outside my periphery.  In chasing the perfect frame, I forgot how perfect each moment was that revealed itself to me.  I was confounded by the cliche "forest for the trees".  

I am learning more and more the importance of seeing, instead of looking.
