Kevin Boldenow’s message: “Over six billion people walk this Earth. By the time you have read this passage, another thousand will be born. There are 300 million Americans alone working, clamoring and striving to get ahead. Day in and day out, millions of  them grab a cup of coffee in the morning, run out to the car with cell phone in  one hand and kids in the other, and find themselves on the road fighting swarms  of people doing the exact same thing.

“In this frenzied race from one  place to the next, few stop to notice the world  around us — not the world  of coffee shops, parking lots, and fast food joints, but the natural world, the  world of shrubs, flowers, trees and animals. In their haste, few see the old oak  tree or Florida pine standing beside the road, see the majestic Washingtonian  Palm and the Bougainvillea in full bloom. They pass by these gifts from God and  ignore them in the never-ending rush we call life.”

He has not been seduced by the clamor of the every day world, he said. With his camera, he makes a point to notice and capture the essence of the world that others ignore.

“What I do is like gathering proof that indeed we live within more than concrete and  asphalt,” he said.
