From The End Comes Beauty
Walking along the shoreline I found an accumulation of feathers and a tragic
death of a beautiful creature. This left me to wonder, how and why. In the water
floats one feather that escaped this tragic ending. I took a picture of this
lone feather as it floated away. Every time I look at it, I wonder about its
ending and the sadness of it all. The demise of this creature lies in this one
beautiful feather floating away.
This one feather seems to bring back the life that was lost. It is amazing to me how a picture can capture the end, and turn it into a memorable image. To me this is what photography is all about. It's the beauty we can capture from the worst situations, or the single item that would go unnoticed. Our passion to capture what escapes us is what makes our images out of the ordinary and captivating.
