It is that time again. Time to take a look at the work of someone humbly flowing great work through the social media streams that catches my eye. Pati Robins captures my imagination due to the way she catches the detail in the world around her. And seems to do it with natural ease. Pictures that may seem simple forgotten memories to you and me with the naked eye, but she captures moments in time so well to leave long memories I am sure.

When Paul asked me to do the guest post for his website – I was astonished and extremely honoured. Landscape and nature photography (if you can call my effort as a photography) is not something I do every day. But I love focusing on small things rather than the big picture, I love the detail, the small things that tend to come unnoticed for us.
I have a huge fear of spiders, so when I spotted this “big” scary spider (see above) inside my daughters playhouse its colours where beautiful, I knew I needed this shot, no matter what, so I grabbed the longest zoom lens I had at the time, and from safe distance I took the shot. It was few years ago, my fear of spiders is still there but fear of missing out on capturing single moments in my life is far greater.
My passion for photography started at very early age. I shoot anything and everything, and my parents where “sick and tired” developing my endless camera rolls. But I started to love it more when I moved to UK in 2006 and received my first DSLR camera and between love-hate relationship I self-learned how to take proper picture.. since then I came on leaps and bounds.
It always amazed me how some of the pictures can attract our attention, and produce in us this kind of feeling and emotion we never experienced before – and I yet to try and achieve this
We can find an interesting subject anywhere , inside and outside – we just need to “open our eyes” to the endless possibilities
I don’t tend to travel much , but when I visit new places or revisit places Loved I always try and take a snap to catch the way that particular place made me feel.
I look at this like my big treasure box , full of things and places that make me feel good , full of simple things like – the leaves, or an empty bench I was looking at –I tend to focus on small things – because small things can make our life whole.
