An Appreciation for Big Cities

I never liked being in cities.  For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to live far out in the country.  No cares, no worries, no traffic.  But that all changed when I fell in love with photography. Now I'm in love with them.  Whether its Philadelphia, or some other city I get to visit to photograph clients, I love them.  I love the lines.  I love the atmosphere.  I love the colors, the pace, the vibe.  I love the buildings, the shadows, the architecture.  I don't see cities as a mess of cars and people now, i see them as blank - or empty.  A blank canvas.  Open to however I want to view it.  I see things with a lens permanently attached to my eye ... figuratively obviously.  I see everything now as a photographer.  And I've come to appreciate big cities.

I do however, still like living outside of them ; )
