The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.

Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.

Sojourns thus far...


 

Teens

San Diego

I got a b&w quickcam for my computer. It resparked my interest in stills photography that had faded from film photography due to its associated costs.

Above, a selfie I did one afternoon by messing with the very few sliders that were available for the web cam settings.

20's

Seattle & Colorado

Packed up and moved to Seattle, WA. Brought along a camera I had just recently purchased, an Olympus C-3030 Zoom. Started to get into Street photography at this point.

A few years later, I found myself in Colorado, where I picked up a boston terrier & a Nikon D70 and continued exploring street photography and my first taste of off camera flash.

30's

Austin, TX

At this point I find myself heavily into photography as my main hobby. Binge watching youtube tutorials, reprocessing photos in multiple ways to see what I could do with them, and attempting to find my "style."

the longest I've ever managed to grow my hair out - I think I look a bit too... Julia Ormond as Sabrina, 1995... POST France internship... lol

It is eventually settled that I cannot commit to any one particular look for my photos... 

...and I'm just fine with that. ;)


To me, you are still nothing more than a little boy who is just like a hundred thousand other little boys. And I have no need of you. And you, on your part, have no need of me. To you I am nothing more than a fox like a hundred thousand other foxes. But if you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world....
