A few years ago, my daughter and I photographed the devastation of Hurricane Katrina (see the gallery here at www.reyspadoni.com)
. Holding the sophisticated Maxxum digital SLR, I was drawn to the magnificent vistas which, to me, at that time, accentuated the vast devastation of the storm. My daughter, with an unremarkable and inexpensive Nikon digital rangefinder camera, was more drawn to the simple stories she found amidst the rubble... for example, a child's doll lying atop a heap that was once a home.
My photos may have been impressive on one level, but hers were much more so in that they elicited an emotional reaction from viewers. I learned a lesson about simplicity and this gallery is my attempt to display what I hope I have learned.
