Don't do anything with my compositions without my permission. Seriously. Heed the warning.

Photography is my third eye. If you want to know more about me, browse my gallery.

My favorite quotes:

"Once the amateur's naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. Every professional should remain always in his heart an amateur." Alfred Eisenstaedt

"Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still." Dorothea Lange

"Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer - and often the supreme disappointment."
Ansel Adams

"Photography has become a small world with so many jealous people." Sebastiao Salgado

"The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each to himself. And that is the most complicated thing on earth."
Edward Steichen

"Good artists copy...great artists steal."
Pablo Picasso

"I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together."
John Lennon

C. S. Lewis:
"I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else."

"Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither."

And from the greatest wordsmith of all time, Groucho Marx:
"I'm not crazy about reality, but it's still the only place to get a decent meal."

"The problem with doing nothing is that you never know when you're finished.”

“Blessed are the cracked, for they shall let in the light.”


Just wanted to first and foremost thank everyone who has made any of my images a favorite of theirs, who has given me a llama, who has accepted / requested me into a group, and has commented.  Everyone has been really awesome.  I realize that as part of this global community, it is more important to give than get.  As soon as I reach a point of equilibrium and become more familiar with the many facets of this community, I plan to unselfishly devote more time to viewing, faveing, giving llamas / points, and commenting.  It's been an exciting first month of membership for me!
