Rene Crystal's Profile
Sometimes I think I was born tightly clutching a camera in my tiny hands. My dad was a news photographer for a large newspaper in New Jersey. I have the best memories of him taking me to the art department of the paper and spending time in the darkroom. My eyes got wider by the second as I saw images emerge on the paper.
Although there is no darkroom anymore, that wonder and excitement of seeing images emerge remains with me still.
It's a crazy, crazy world today. Take the time, even if a few moments, to look around you and take in the gift of simple beauty that nature gives us each and every day.
