Photography connects people – through interests, locations, and cultures. It spans time and distance as a bridge between worlds. I have learned much about life, nature, and people by connecting myself with photography groups and viewing online galleries. At the same time, the people I have met come from all levels of photography. There is nothing as heartwarming as meeting someone who has traveled further than I and photographed things I will never see in person, yet they are still humble, willing to share their experiences, and teach others what they have learned.
