Photography is passion and compassion all rolled into one! It's art and discipline, adventure and thought --with an edge of competitiveness! It offers composure, yet allows me to escape through my lens with a wild eye discovering both mood and creativity. Still, landscape or portraiture--no two shots are ever the same--to me--it's all about perspective.Quoting from renown female artist--photographer Imogen Cunningham:

"One must be able to gain an understanding at short notice and close range of the beauties of character, intellect, and spirit so as to be able to draw out the best qualities and make them show in the outer aspect of the sitter. To do this one must not have a too pronounced notion of what constitutes beauty in the external and, above all, must not worship it. To worship beauty for its own sake is narrow, and one surely cannot derive from it that esthetic pleasure which comes from finding beauty in the commonest things."

Thank you for viewing my photos!

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
