Cities, Streets, & Their Unending Scenes
One of my favorite things to do is "float" the streets with my camera. To me, the bubbling atoms of energy are everywhere to uncover. The life of contrast can even be so overwhelming that I shoot and shoot and shoot.
Whether small towns or big cities, I've had the opportunity to explore and shoot all over the U.S. and parts of the world I once never dreamed existed, not even in my geography classes. Seattle, Portland, Sonoma, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, Los Angeles, San Diego, Cabo San Lucas, Playa del Carmen, San Juan & Ponce, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, San Jose and Cartago, Costa Rica, Miami, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Dallas, Phoenix, Rapid City, and Oklahoma City are a few stops that have fed into my collection of photographs.
The Nurture of Nature
Though I have a lean for the contrasts of what street photography offers, without the balance of nature, I would not refuel the peace that's needed to produce the work and all I've been lucky to experience.
From the rolling hills of Washington state (where my grandmother's land still boasts the most breathtaking views) to the mountains, grasslands, forests, oceans, seas, lakes, rivers and streams, I love the discovering the complex simplicities that nature and landscape offers me.
With the recent visit to Nepal, and the trek to Everest Base Camp, the scenes explored were beyond my comprehension. Though pictures and words are mediums of depiction, the experience and the awe is beyond what I could ever capture and share.
