Thoughts & Images

I have never considered myself a creative person.  I am a numbers guy - analytical, and somewhat of a linear thinker.  My grandfather was an accomplished amateur photographer, and a self taught (and licensed) engineer who could speak four languages.  My mom, also an accomplished amateur photographer, was a CPA and County Auditor in the local government.  Photography has always come naturally.  I have been told I have a good eye - I'll leave that up to you to decide.  I love photography, but there is another form of expression that I have also learned to love over my lifetime, and that is writing.  

I just completed Ansel Adams Autobiography and I was struck by his amazing ability to write - how his writing complemented his photography.  His writing was not a description of his images, nor were his images a description of his prose.  He wrote what was in his heart, influenced by the beauty of the natural world around him.

My hope is that this blog in some way imitates that form of expression, working in unison to illuminate the world that I see around me and love so much.  I hope you enjoy.
