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.

Bridge Over .....

If not for some people who come into our world we might have remained suspended in the longest pause in between waiting and living.

I think we are bridges crossing over each other leaving our journeys in each other.

Goodbyes a beginning on one side and endings depending on which view you have carried with you.

We build bridges and sometimes walk to the opposite sides to wave at each other from time to time.

And to turn our back for the bridge we cross next cannot look back.

I know I have left pieces of me on bridges that I no longer walk and I regret not what I left behind.

It may have made another bridge stronger; it may have shown an understanding about a strength in their character.

It may have made someone see that they can be brave even when tears wash footprints away.

It may have taught a lesson.

It may just be useless information.

If you walk to my bridge and there’s a detour sign please take that sign down, I sometimes put them up when I get the notions I should be under deconstruction.

Bridges can be torn down but they can be built again, even burnt bridges should have a second chance if the builder is truly ready to repair.

I’ll be a sturdy bridge for those that show respect for my foundations.
