It's the journey, not the destination Mel Curtis's thoughts on a life in the world of photography

I was Here

I have always had a burning desire to make photographs. Even now, after almost 40 years. I love everything about the process, the seeing, the  discovering, then framing and ultimately capturing. And then in processing or as we now call it, editing, seeing if my little caterpillar will become a beautiful butterfly. I have also always enjoyed seeing the ordinary things around me. The mundane little things, that for some reason catch my eye. Or sometimes I want to make an image, simply to say I was here, at this moment in time, knowing that life is ephemeral and that image may be the only evidence of your presence.
