    Photography as Emotion: andredimu

    *Once upon a time... and so... one day... how did you discover photography?* My first camera was the Olympus Trip Junior as a gift when I was about 10-12 years old, today I'm still jealously of it as well as the photos shooted with. I spent whole afternoons watching old photos taken by my parents when they were young until my childhood... color or b/w photos in many different size! Photos that tell their story and even mine. I think passion for photography started then when I tryed to understand why a photo was taken. What did they want to fix in time? A memory, an emotion, a landscape, an anniversary or what? Why did they chose that pose, place or time? Then I understood. Simply because those moments, faces and places seemed fine for them. For me photography means just this: look around and discover the beauty.
