The camera obscura was discovered by mistake and like all inventions a childlike perception gave it contemplation and excitement.
Soon after it became a tool, for painters among others. Later with the introduction of a glass lens and then light sensitive paper it seemed like it would compete with the art of painting.
It has now become as versatile as a pen... or as a hammer.
I appreciate photography most when used for its intrinsic qualities with time: it can show us a frozen section of it not otherwise possible, and with a long exposure tell a story in one frame with brilliant colors.
