“Photography creates a feeling of mindfulness. When we slow down and pay attention to the small beautiful details our world has to offer, we affirm the preciousness of the present moment. All too often our minds are full of constant chatter concerning the past or the future.
“Photography can act as a form of meditative appreciation for living mindfully in the present, and help us to quell the runaway thoughts that enslave us. Hence, we wanted to give an outlet to those who prefer to see the world with their lens eye in their spare time, thus making time for what they love most,” explains a spokesperson.
