“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness — just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” Laura Ingalls Wilder
To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
Miami was on fire last night! I live in this amazing city, and last night the Miami Heat won the NBA Championship against the Oklahoma City Thunder. They played right here at the American Airlines Arena, which is located in Downtown Miami. I wasn’t there at all, I have to tell you that I have some phobias, for example I am afraid of big crowds, enclosed spaces. But yesterday, after watching the game I came home and could see from a distance the huge lines of cars, and could hear all these cars honking non-stop, loud music, people making noise with pots and pans. Yes, Miami was literally on fire celebrating out on the streets our Miami Heat Champions. Shooting late at night, without an external flash, and lots of movement is quite a challenge. Yet, it was a very rewarding experience. Just check out this first guy, people get very creative indeed! Cheers everyone!
