Photography is my tool in hundreds of way.
I have never claimed to be a photographer, but just an observer. I record as a journal, a diary, a memory, a feeling, a tender fleeting moment, a glimpse in time in the present once recorded is immediately in the past a captured image, a inquiry in to time and its meaning, an paint brush, an etching tool, ....hundreds of things I choose to do with a little point and shoot camera. I use a Lumix with 16 times focus. It fits in a pocket easily, and captures spontaneous moments. I am happy with the color as well. I would like an even more powerful zoom however.
I am not picky about skill, and perhaps I should be...but art is intuitive to me and my experience in life is much that way. The moment and how I react to it are usually paramount to me...for life is a journey, an experience, and an experiment for me. Life for you may be very different, but I offer you a view of my journey as an artist, teacher and fellow human being.

|I love the look of the lighting here and the linear contrast of the branches|
|There is so little light here, and I could have lightened it up, but this if how we see scenes often...just a bit of reflected light on a wet pavement|
|Even though the cars are here, with the lighting and look I could be in a much earlier time period in Washington D.C, with carriages rattling by.|
|The soft glow of street lights remind me of London as well.|
