I've never thought of myself as creative.

In early 2019, while I was living in Rio de Janeiro, a good friend let me borrow his DSLR camera. 
I took it everywhere with me. I took thousands and thousands of terrible pictures. For every thousand unusable pictures, I found a few that were alright. 
I was hooked. 
I bought a Fuji XT3 when I got back to California and have been shooting ever since. 
The thing I appreciate most about photography is that it forces you to slow down and changes the way you see things around you.
