"The point is to be involved in the moment."
This is one of the things I value about photography. The way I approach photography demands that I be aware of my surroundings as much as possible, from the big picture to the smallest details, because there is so much worth noticing and capturing in the details and sweep of each moment.
In the rest of my life, I spend a lot of time making plans and thinking ahead and the present moment risks being overlooked. Being involved in the moment is a skill I want to work on carrying over from photography to more of the rest of my life.
