We tend to look to others, finding their faults, and expecting them to be the sole owners of change. Rarely do we look, to ourselves, where change is most needed. We can all improve something about ourself, before we poke fun at others; none of us are perfect, and we can learn something from everyone around us, if weonly try. Step out of your routine, open your eyes to someone or something you haven't before noticed, don't be so quick to judge others; try and learn something new from ,or about a person you would normally just glide by in life. Study them like you would a painting, or piece of art, look deeper, beyond the surface, for longer that a split second. Like the cover of a book, open up the hard front, inside you may find a chapter into a future, beyond your expectations. You may never know how that one person could be able to expand your world. There are new doors that open for each of us every day, it is our choice to go beyond the doorway of what we know, to make a self transformation. We won't always succeed, but we gain knowledge and strength from the experience, and confidence, from the will to try. Transform yourself today, I hope you succeed!!!

"Nature to Neutral" this collection, is a series of my own outdoor, nature photographs, transformed through digital enhancements, into abstract designs. The colors and tones, in these pieces, mimic those natural colors that we find in our daily environment. The textures of the outdoors, are still very apparent, and in some cases, still in their natural form, and recongnizable.
