Today my heart goes out to the people of Nepal. Ten years ago I visited a good friend who is like a sister to me. As soon as my earthquake app buzzed I reached out to my friend in Kathmandu. Thank God she is safe and secure, but I can't help but think back to the beauty of Kathmandu and my time spent in Nepal.
Photographing Kathmandu was an experience I will never forget. The people, the food and the landscape are beautiful in a way that is hard to describe. I felt a sense of peace that is hard to describe as well while there in Kathmandu. It was a magical place with incredible buildings that had a charm unlike any place I've seen.
Photography is a way of not only capturing beautiful images, but also for remembering our life. Every image we create is a document of our time on earth and what we are doing with our time. Nothing lasts forever, but our photographs can help to preserve the beauty we see each day. Today, take time to photograph the things around you that you take for granted; the images of people texting, the TV in your home, the newspaper or magazine your reading. These images will one day become more precious as life continues to evolve around us.
