Picture Pages

Updated on November 6, 2011

The Photographer

I am here-and these are my moments behind a camera.

Picture Pages is my story told by photographs


This is who I am without being in front of the camera or behind a pen. Art is in my genetic gene pool and has been presented to me throughout my life in various ways. My grandfather, my father, my sister and I have all been passionate about seeing the world through a view finder.

Picture Pages is my world, through my eyes, captured in a photograph and shared with the world. I hope you enjoy the world through Picture Pages.

Images Worth Remembering

We see images, everywhere we turn.

Picture Pages are all the little pieces that make up me.


This is the world of Picture Pages,

Come in and take a seat,

It is usually a pleasant place to be,

As long as the kids are asleep.


Picture Pages is my world,

The peace I sometimes need to feel.

It is snaps of images that remind me of what once was,

And what is somewhat real.

There is something beautiful everywhere you look

Oh yes, I remember why I am in Texas.

Life Can Sometimes Begin at Sunset

I see far more than an object when I look into a camera, onto the world.


These are the images of my life.

A recollection of my past,

The imagery of my present,

With a sense of what I have,


When I stare through a camera lens,

It is not just the objects that I see,

It is the shapes and shades of darkness against light,

That makes an image one of beauty.

and it isn't too cold for...

Butterflies

The world finally slows to a stop as the shutter opens and closed

My mind becomes clear, as my eyes begin to focus


I don’t think about anything,

As I hold a camera in my hands,

I am taken to a different world,

And it is there that I feel who it is I am.


This is the world of Picture Pages,

It is mostly who I am.

If you can’t see the beauty in the ordinary,

I am sure you can’t understand.

There is just something about being in Texas that brings more peace to my mind.

Slow down and take a look around- Just don't steal what is not yours


While you are here,

Feel free to look around,

Leave a comment if you like,

and give it a thumbs up or thumbs down.


If you like a photo or two,

Please do not take without permission.

Picture Pages is my life,

and I would rather you not steal my submissions.

and the best thing about Texas is... I fell in love and had my children here...

I know where home is...


There is nothing quite like finding your way home, and knowing that you are where you should be. I live my life each and every day, the way that I want to live it-and no longer worry what others think of who I am. I dream- I hope- I pray- I love, with no secret as to who I am and what my heart holds.

Picture Pages is the story of my world caught in snapshots, these are the truths, and matter of facts, which I hold dear in the world. Regardless of how beautiful the landscapes may be elsewhere-regardless of how magical a place may seem- my home is where my heart is, and my heart is forever and always with my children. As far as I am concerned, the world may keep its magic... I have plenty right here in my arms in Texas.


Thanks for visiting me, and reviewing some of my work. I hope that a look at Picture Pages, gave you some peace to reflect on tonight. Comments are always appreciated- So go ahead and comment away! Thank you again for checking out my writing and photography...There is more to come!

      vasantha T k-

      I think I like the single flower the most- I like to take close up photographs of items-so the details and colors stand out in an awe- kind of way :) Thanks for sharing your feedback- I appreciate you taking the time to look at my work here.

      Ghaelach- thanks for stopping by and looking through my hub. That is probably what I love most about photo's...they really do speak tons without saying a work. Taking photographs allows me to see the world a little differently-a little more simply and for the beauty that really is. Thanks again for the comment!
