There are so many humble people I see on Twitter and Facebook that take pictures, post them and catch the eye of many. One such person is Esta H Singer. Never a day goes by it seems were I can log on to a network and not be drawn by her remarkable natural ability to capture unique moments wherever she is. Finally I was honoured to have her explain her passion and thoughts when with her camera. In her own words here….
From the desk of Esta……….
I’m appreciative, and honored that Paul asked if he could do a post about my photos. I’ve been an amateur photographer for about a year, and always question my talent… “are my photos really any good?” I’m thankful that someone I respect said “yes!”.
I’m inspired by everything, people, architecture, landscapes. I walk everywhere with my camera, and drawn to images that express history; a quiet moment, a proud building, a serene or turbulent landscape. For me, it’s about capturing one moment of truth in time.
Historic towns abound on the Jersey Shore, so I take advantage of weekends along the coast to photograph people, landscapes, and architecture that tells a story. The state gets a bad rap, but truly, you need to put preconceptions aside and open your eyes- it’s beautiful.
For me, it’s more than an exercise in aesthetics. It’s documenting life, and history, in a way that inspires interest and emotion for others. Also, it’s about having an honest respect for your subject.
Snow- I’m probably one of the few who loves snow! I think it’s magical. I love the clean white simplicity, the snowflakes gently falling… it brings me to a quite place. I love the way it gives everything it falls upon ~ a old landmark, or proud tree~ an opportunity to express its individuality, often overlooked under multitudes of color and undefined lines.
I love giving a voice to everything I see, and a moment of truth to every landscape and piece of architecture. It’s about capturing life one snap at a time.
