"As an artist, I am always viewing my world from the standpoint of awe. Inspiration comes from seeing things that no one else may value." - Leslie Elliottsmith
My photographs go through many iterations before I decide on the final image. The work "Chasm" changed over several weeks and started with a morning winter landscape from Natchitoches parish.
