In a nod to the talented and artistic photographers in the Wichita area, The Eagle and Kansas.com today introduce a new occasional feature in which we highlight a local resident and his or her photographs.

We’d like to take a peek behind your lens — no professional experience or formal training needed.

As we’re doing today, we’ll publish one photo in the Sunday Arts & Leisure section and a couple dozen or so additional pictures in a gallery on Kansas.com.

Today’s featured photographer is 17-year-old Wichitan Brixey McWhorter, a senior at Maize South High School.

“I love to take photos because it paints the pictures that I can’t,” she wrote. “I love it because its shows the beauty of the little things in life that often go unnoticed, and it reminds me how blessed I am to live surrounded by wonderful, beautiful things and beautiful people.”

Visit Kansas.com to view more of her photographs.
