Rose Colored Glasses

Years ago I listened to John Conlee sing this song on the jukebox and fell in love with it and the world around me. It fit me at the time, as I was young and without worry. I have seen and felt a lot of pain through out my life and as most of my friends know, I can be a bit of a pessimist (okay more than a bit)....

but holding Althea or watching Dorie dance clears my mind and my heart and I remember that the world can be good and clean and loving... I get the same sensation when I pick up a camera. I loose myself and become a different person and so does the world.

I find delight in the smallest of things; dew on a leaf, a strange colored lizard and even the most ordinary of things like the skyline of Augusta GA changes when I focus my camera.
