Ansel Adams is one of my favorite photographers. I have five or six of his photos in my house. I love the black and white landscapes. So simple yet so striking. My all-time favorite is a photograph of a graveyard. I understand it was a time release photograph, so the moon is high in the sky, yet the grave stones are still lit up as if they were in sunlight. I love it!
My friend, Andrew (Liquidpulp Photography), takes amazing photographs as well. He also takes beautiful landscapes. And when he photographs people, he is often looking for a look that is interesting, more than something beautiful by society's standards.
I've always loved photography. I have a camera in my purse at all times. I am constantly snapping photos of the sky with my iPhone as I'm driving down the road. This is how my love affair with Creepy Tree started. One day I took a picture, posted it on Facebook, and now Creepy Tree has his own fan club!
I dream of one day buying an expensive digital SLR and traveling the world to photograph cool and interesting places. In fact, if I am one day blessed by the lotto gods and win my $350 million (wait, $317 million), that is exactly what I will do! Until then, my fantasies and little camera will have to do. :-)
