No time is more exciting than a day a photographer comes to visit. It's an absolute thrill to see how others view things differently from us, and even more if they lead us to see things we sometimes do not even realize in the first place.

And if they even portray such ordinary, taken-for-granted things with such evocative imagery, it makes us sit back and take stock what else we could be missing in our busy and hurried lives. A lot of times, what gives us immense pleasure are not monumental, mystical, and unreachable but instead, everyday and mundane stuff: a flower, a relaxing afternoon, the way the light streams in.

It takes sensitivity and
introspection to capture and convey not just objects and views but such abstractions as mood, ambience, and feeling

And to be able to accomplish it, and very well at that, with technical precision and impeccable timing is undoubtedly an art.

Joaquin Zamora captures the essence of 1784 so poetically in his images, shown here. His photographs can speak far, far more than any material I can come up with in this blog for months! For more of his photos, click the link to his tabblo page and be awed by so much else we're missing.
