Janet L. McDonald Statement:
I often find wonder and beauty in the world around me. Whether I’m walking through the woods or even spending time in my own neighborhood, I always see magic in the ordinary. I am compelled to capture those scenes through my eyes so I can not only relive the joy I felt in that moment but share these portraits into my perspective and experience with others.
