The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

Sometimes images pop up out of nowhere and not always at a convenient time. This scene is from the lobby of a small hotel in Mexico. I had only had seconds to take the photo. At the moment, I wasn't sure what attracted me to the images. It became clear when I began to process the photo and rediscovered its value. I like the confusion, not knowing if the scene behind the counter is real or a painting. I also like its balance and colors. It serves as a reminder to always be aware of your visual surroundings and not hesitate to take the shot. Our first perceptions are usually good. They often come from our subconscious, a place that stores our life experiences.
