Look Closer - Berkeley, CA
1 Nov 2008
When you think of Berkeley, what comes to mind? Most likely, something like Hippies, the free speech movement, liberalism, and pot. But there is so much more to Berkeley than that--as a former student and current employee at the university, I have made it my creative mission to show the enormous beauty lingering year-round in this extremely misunderstood city.
I find that the great beauty in life is found in areas where busy people don't normally look. I go on walks every day to clear my head, looking for those little glimmers of beauty that will not only reassure me that hope is everywhere...but that will encourage other people to pay more attention to the details in their everyday lives. We really are so lucky to be alive, and I hope these photos help demonstrate the wonder and awe I have for nature and the universe.
