Real Life Through the Zoom Lens of Photographer Kevin Dooley

Life is not a problem to be solved,
but a reality to be experienced.
– Soren Kierkegaard

from Newark New Jersey, King with Ridin’

“I want to create something the viewer can enjoy….
or a point in time, never to be seen again.”
– Kevin Dooley, Chandler Arizona

Real Life

Real life can be filled with promise.

Real LIfe can be filled with good friends:
laughing & talking when times are good and
holding each other up when life changes its mood.

Life can be made into art, to immortalize
our existence or to escape its reality.

Life starts a new. No bias, no judgments, no hate.

Life can be loud, but its melody a sweet song, nonetheless.

Life in its intimate beauty,
exist everywhere.

But most importantly…

Life is not a problem to be figured out,
but a reality to be experienced.

Welcome to The Neighborhood


  1. Nice photography. The pictures carry me along the blog post like a story would with words. I wonder why the symbol of Islam was in the midst of all those Christian crosses?

      • Well I have several collections of different things. I would love to share them. I wouldn’t say I had a pedigree though, my sisters and brother all are very talented, as was our father, in photography. I love beauty in everything I see. Thank you!!
