Building a Better World Starts With YOU.

I like finding posts which speak to me on a deeper level. Oftentimes, they aren’t posts dealing with photography, which is a major focal point for this little blog of mine. I tend to re-blog posts that in their own right are powerfully realized to the page, filled with beauty, truth, humor or realness. Earlier…

Gandhi Walks…

Every so often as a photographer an image, a statue, a sculpture speaks to me in ways that defy words. This is one such statue. I came close to running into it, not knowing it was there. Once I realized what it was and who it paid tribute to, I decided to spend some time…

It’s The End of Mankind, But I Hope Not!

So, I got asked by my buddy Noh the other day why I reblogged the ‘Mankind’s Tombstone’ post. He thought it felt really dire(his word) and apocalyptic. I had to explain to him that while, yes, it does feel like both of those things, dire and apocalyptic, I also felt and still feel hopeful because…

The Flute Player

…Another picture from my recent visit to The Cherry Blossom Festival. It is also another example of how much I like to observe first, and shoot the photo only when I feel I understand what I am looking at! This flute player was beautiful,enchanting and elegant  in that she moved with such sureness, precision, and…

I Observe You

I observe you, and by observing, see a little deeper into me. I see into me, and in seeing, find you waiting patiently, to take my hand, leading the way to freedom, across the jagged path of my unruly consciousness. I trust what you see in me, for what you see are all the things…

It’s You, the One and Only!

I remember seeing a friend whom I had worked with for years, preparing to transition from one chapter of his life, into a brand new one. The ‘old life’ had become comfortable, safe, known. He had spent countless hours, days, months, years making it so. Now was the time to step into the Great Unknown,…

The Enlightened One

Will probably outlast everyone, by daring to look into the Sun, Tears stream down, he does not blink, A moment’s pain he’s free to think, Of other lives he cannot live, The beating Heart he cannot give, And still he does not turn away, His mind so sure there’s more to say, Feelings, emotions ,…

Eyes Wide Open

EYES WIDE OPEN… Are your eyes wide open, or are they squeezed shut from a desire NOT to see something currently happening in your life? If your eyes are opened, you are perhaps the kind of person who does not frighten easily. You understand fear happens to those who live in the past, focus on…

Don’t Give Up…

…I snapped the picture of this ‘fellow traveler’ upon the planet months ago. I didn’t know him or approach him before I depressed the camera’s button. I simply responded to what his face made me feel in that moment… take the picture. I though his eyes held the ancient memories and wisdom of  a long…
