"The World" demands our attention every second of every minute after our senses open up first thing in the morning.

I cannot remember much these days because there is too much to remember. My brain goes through a filtering process which, leaving great amounts of information inside a dark storage area so I can get on with life.

That is why when I make photographs, it has to be memorable or I will forget, again.

When I pick up the camera, "I" disappears. The world inside the tiny rectangular box goes into slow motion while outside world speeds up and by the time I finish, it is only me and the vivid memories I have captured remain.

I often lose myself, time and place while chasing light (or that impossibly active butterfly taunting me). It surprises me that we often make the excuse for not having time to stay still for a brief moment and observe our beautiful world around us. Holding up the lens to my eyes allows me to zero in and appreciate both the inseparable micro and macro worlds.
