Seeing Life Through The Lens

BY CHARLENE DUNAWAY
@ VOL 8 ON AUG 13, 2015

Leaving no stone unturned (and no leaf for that matter), Charlene Dunaway has always had a knack for finding the hidden gems in the world around her. A splash of color, a flash of light, or an unusual shadow will stop her in her tracks, igniting her sense of curiosity and leading her down a lesser travelled path to a new discovery. No subject can be called ordinary or mundane once Charlene lays her eyes on it. Though finding her passion later in life, she has always looked upon her world with wonder and is excited to share it with anyone willing to see.
