FRAMING BEAUTY – ONE MOMENT AT A TIME
Beauty Truly Doth Lie In the Eye of the Beholder
More than business, photography is a form of art. We use the camera to focus on moments yet seen, though within plain sight; to reveal existential beauty, often overlooked; and to encourage others who think outside the box.
North Carolina holds many hidden treasures. Those who work and play here are blessed with majestic Smokey Mountains to the North and West, as well as several hundred miles of historic islands and beautiful coast land to the East. One can enjoy a tranquil sunrise along the coast, or from atop the beautiful Blue Ridge – where views towards the west are equally spectacular as the sun continues it’s orbit.
If not careful, we get caught up in hurried lifestyles; unable to see, much less enjoy, beautiful moments meant to draw us towards Our Creator, and thus, solace to our souls. Society has a way of robbing us of the ability to slow down long enough to even take notice. Its easy to get caught up in the race and if not careful, lose sight of what’s important while settling for that which holds less meaning.
At FRAMING TIME we would rather spend time revealing the hidden places than to compromise value for the sake of time. Time is our most precious asset. We would that those caught up in the struggle to attain that which is fleeting might take notice of a single moment and wonder at the beauty contained therein. We travel roads less traveled in the hope that others might catch a glimpse of life outside the boundaries society tries desperately to mold us within.
The same holds true with all of nature. We see it all around us, but rarely slow down enough to ponder it’s grand design. Albeit a change in season or a cry of the hawk, subtle distractions designed to draw us from the mundane are often overlooked. There is no need to dread the cold of winter; embrace it! If it be possible to teach the least (and it certainly is) that the seasons and all God’s creatures were designed w/beauty and purpose in mind, then we find purpose.
