Travel and photography fill my life with wonder and joy. Photography is a way of telling a story without speaking. A unique part of me is in the image. It’s a combination of what my eyes see and my attempt to show my unique way of interpreting it to others. “You can’t depend on your eyes when your mind is out of focus,” said the great Mark Twain. This is my motto for my art, to visualize, to anticipate, and to instill a part of me into each image.
