Before Your Very Eyes

I proudly present to you…

am very happy to share with you the start of a new adventure for VGinie Mora Photography.

For more than a year now, I have been using this website to fulfil my passion for photography as well as to share the fruits of this passion with you.  I have posted pictures of things I’ve seen, places I’ve been. I also shared with you things I have experienced and the most random thoughts that happened to cross my mind along the way. Somehow, through the pictures that I have taken and published here, I believe that I not only gave you a snapshot of the world around me, but also a snapshot of the one within me…

As Ansel Adams once said: “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” 

And this is what I truly love about photography: It is not static. It is not mute. Even the most random holiday snapshot says: “this is beautiful, and I don’t trust my forgetful mind to hold on to it forever…” A photograph prevents the moment from escaping your grasp… which is what the moment always does by definition.

Photography helps me to keep a collection of beautiful split-seconds that I happened to witness. But unlike some people who like to keep their birds in cages, I like mine to keep on flying. Therefore, the best part for me really starts when I bring these special moments before your very eyes

It is like a good meal, like a nice cup of coffee or a lovely slice of cake we have at the terrace of a café on a sunny Sunday afternoon… It always tastes better when shared.

It is with this idea of sharing fleeting moments that Before Your Very Eyes came into being. Ever since this idea took hold of my brain, I have been trying to make it come true. And here we are, a few months later.

For now, Before Your Very Eyes is an addition to the VGinie Mora website (like a little sister). Hopefully, she will soon live a life of her own. This means trying to make Before Your Very Eyes designs available on the market. And here is a good way to start:

I take this opportunity to thank every single one of you who, at any point in time, stopped by and had a look at my photographs. Special thanks if you are reading this till the end!! 😉 You’re the best! I hope you have liked what you’ve seen so far. If this is the case, I hope to share even more “special split-seconds” with you in the future. 

Take Care xx
