On Display @ PCA – photographs by Tim McDaniel

Bleeding Hearts by Tim McDaniel PCA is pleased to display the photography of local artist Tim McDaniel for the month of May.

Tim McDaniel is a resident of Batesville and an active member of the Charlottesville Photography Initiative. All of the images on display were taken with a Canon EOS or point-and-shoot cameras.

Mr. McDaniel says about his work:

“Ever since about the age of 13, I have been told that I have an ‘eye’ for photographing things. I never really took them seriously, as I have always been my worst critic until I decided one day that maybe I should share my work. I thought that perhaps by allowing others into a part of my life, they would experience some of the joy that I feel every time I see something beautiful capture my attention, then to be captured forever on a photograph. I have photographed everything from landscapes to flora, even a couple of weddings and portraits. If I think it needs to be memorialized I’ll shoot it (so to speak). I moved to Virginia from California after living there for over 27 years. I had the opportunity to see and experience many things, then found myself in central Virginia shortly after a rather large earthquake convinced me to try something new. Ever since moving in 1994 I have seen a new and fresh kind of beauty all around. I started taking more and more photographs and began sharing them with my close friends and family. After hearing enough positive feedback, I decided to begin showing my work. So there you have it. I remain always grateful for the blessings I have in life, and let others share my joy in pictures. One photograph at a time.”
