Patricia Ortiz states; “Life is full of unpredictable moments. How often have we all observed in a glance a moment which took our breath away or evoked an emotional response? Instances like these are reasons I began my journey into the world of photography, which has allowed me to suspend these moments in time. I began taking photos with my cell phone as we all do, but as I fell more and more in love with capturing real life, I decided to buy my first camera about a year and a half ago. Thus began an interpretation of life thru my eyes and lens. 
Artist Statement:
    "If I could choose one word to describe San Antonio, it would be enchanting. Our city captivates people from all over the world with its history, culture, traditions, food, music and folklore. I too am constantly captivated by the charm of this city. As part of the tricentennial celebration I wanted to capture bits and pieces of San Antonio’s allure by application of composite photography."
