I believe - "Wherever you go, there you are." My life-long passion has taken me to many places and introduced me to many people. It is the images of people that last in my memory. The idea is simple - I am compelled to take the picture. My chosen light is natural - through a window, in the shade of a tree or in some dimly lighted place. Black and white resists time and I love it above most color images. Sometimes the image embeds in my mind's eye and I pursue it to a conclusion. I hope others will enjoy and even beyond that understand the image and the intent.
