Earth Witness: Exposition, is a collection of photography by Caroline Carson. It includes pictures from world travels, local New Orleans life, and plants & animals. This is the first in the Earth Witness series and strives to reflect the vibrancy, peace, beauty, and mysticism we find in daily life.
"Nature is more "alive" than we often notice. It is an honor to recognize a special moment that one may never experience again and to not only savour it, but to revere it. Places we will only visit once that "belong" to another time, trees that abide in their own destiny, animals or people who generate a special character, certain timelessness found in aged ruins, the breath of living waters, and the freshly-dewed flower - these are but a few influential images."
The photos were all taken with either an iPhone 3G or Canon Powershot 10X Digital and have not been altered.
