I find that photographs can confront many people with the visual world
they would mostly ignore otherwise. Many of us fall into habitual seeing
so that we do not see and appreciate the wonderful and strange sights around
us all the time. I am engaged in a daily photography project (see http://gallery.me.com/lstreet#100122)
in order to motivate me to overcome this habitual seeing for myself and
Cities have many scenes that everyone should notice more. But these
cityscapes are nothing compared to beautiful and strange scenes like those
on Ossabaw Island.
Of course, I photograph because I enjoy the process of photography and
because I enjoy being in the scene, especially scenes like those on Ossabaw
But I also enjoy showing my photographs to others because I feel like
I am sharing a wonderful treasure… and perhaps helping them to wake up just
a little to see the beautiful and strange world around them.
My intent in photographing Ossabaw Island is to share its beauty and strangeness
with others who would never see it otherwise. I hope this will increase
the appreciation and protection directed toward Ossabaw Island.
