You Are So Talented

Share on Tumblr

When I look through web pages such as Flickr, deviantART, or StumbleUpon I get so inspired by everyone’s work. The most incredible part of this is that so much of this art is created by ordinary people like you and me.

There’s just so much beauty in the world and every single one of us has the ability to capture a small part of it through our digital cameras or our drawings. Each one of us can stop time for just a split second and share that single moment with the rest of the world – and sometimes, often when we least expect it, that moment will touch a very intimate nerve within those who see it and enrich their lives spontaneously, even if just for a fleeting moment.

This is why I love photography. I look through my sister Ineta’s photos, my beautiful girlfriend Angela’s – some of them are just so amazing. And neither of them considers herself a professional, not by a long shot.

This is why I love photography. And this is why I created this site. And this is why I want to encourage everyone to take photos.

I don’t care who you are or what type of camera you use, you have the power to capture the beauty of life through a single click of a button – and remind someone, even half the world away, what a wonderful place we live in.
