Everything that could possible happen between people happens during photography. It’s cool to see life thru a lens and play out on that stage over and over again. For me photography is a chance to peek in the human condition a little bit and see what makes people human and too see what makes them tick. It could be love, hate, stress, fear or anything for that matter but I have seen it through photography. I love it and I have to see that real burn out. If I saw photography as a job then I would get burnt out. I love to see a different way on how to understand people and even the relationships between people. Seeing so much beauty, emotion and action in photography made me open my eyes. Every day and ever place I walk I see something I can capture with a camera. I am always making notes and creating my own Rolodex of ideas. When I photograph, I document life happening before my eyes. It’s dynamic, fluid, and I must react to what’s happening before me to capture its essence. I love the problem solving and the hunt that comes along with photography.

The Muslim Prayer ...

The Muslim prayer
at dawn
and sunset
we get use to it
when the prayers are not there
we fear for what is coming
some find it scary
to hear it every day
some don’t care at all
but few of us find it peaceful
to know someone still has faith
for most of us
including me
have lost it
somewhere between
the last mortar and the dead four year old
we just pulled off the road
that faith we held
diminished slowly
with metal and fire
with blood and silent eyes
someone needs to believe
someone needs faith
to substitute for the ones
who no longer hold that light
that once filled our hearts.
