So seldom does the photographer get to become part of the art and the vision shared with the world. However, sometimes accidents turn out to be quite spectacular. I wanted to capture the image of Seattle’s downtown while riding the Light Rail southbound, but the reflective glare of the windows were impeding my ability to do that. Instead of becoming frustrated, I decided to use the reflection to my advantage and used the lens of my camera as a static fixture in this piece and used my body as the back-drop thus, making the city part of me and myself part of the city. Then I edited the picture to draw out the colors beyond the reflection and viola, a beautiful picture emerges.
Creativity and innovation are necessary ingredients to a good and happy life full of growth.
