We all love and hate having our pictures taken. We take them to preserve a precious moment in time. In days, weeks, months or years, our memory fades, but the photograph in whatever form it was captured still exists, reminding us of that fleeting moment. On our travels I was asked many times by complete strangers to take a photo of them. We have all done this at some point in time. The thing I find fascinating, is that you are being invited into their world for the briefest moment, never to be seen again. I made it my quest to record this phenomena.

What are we thinking whilst observing nature? Are we simply feeling? Are we preoccupied with the ever present chatter inside our heads? The things I can be sure of, is it's a time to stop, observe, touch, smell and feel. What is this person thinking? We can draw our own conclusions, all of which will be varied depending on how we feel at the time of viewing. A great image to me, is one that makes the viewer go beyond their initial thoughts and look deeper at a situation, place or moment.
