Angie Cramer’s Alberta prairie…
Flickr is a wonderful place to share and also to discover other photographers. And so it was last week while checking out a contacts photos that I came across a friend of his, Angie Cramer.
There are millions of photos on Flickr and it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. So much talent is there hidden among the family albums, snapshots, etc. When I came upon Angie’s photo stream I was immediately drawn into it. It’s easy for anyone to get one or two great images. Anyone can get lucky with light, weather and processing. Angie’s photo stream was filled with beautiful, moody and artful images of the prairie.
As someone who shoots mainly on the prairie, I was struck by how different Angie’s photos look like from mine. A similar landscape, hers might be even more open and more flat than where I live but it has a distinctly southern Alberta look to it.
There is a dreamy, lost in time quality in her photos. A photo that can take you away from where you are, to another place and another time is a photo that tells it’s story well and Angie’s photos weave an interesting tale of times and memories from the past on the prairie.
I have long believed that the better those are around me, the better I will become. In sharing Angie’s work with you, I hope you become inspired and that it adds to your own unique way of seeing and capturing the world around you.
Take a moment from your day to visit Angie’s photo stream on Flickr. I know that you’ll be as inspired and motivated as I was when I first viewed it.
