When I was a young boy my father always was fond of saying that I was skilled at ‘taking pictures of every rock and telephone pole I saw’. He was right. Now that I’ve grown older I’d like to think that I’ve moved beyond the telephone poles to include other elements, such as trees, flowers, water and sky. But I haven’t given up on the rocks.
What catches my eye is the beauty of light reflected off our created world. The physics of it is as amazing as the eyes and brains we use to see it. I see every photographic image as a triune collision of three elements: object, light and the eye. The whole arrangement speaks of a Creator’s hand. Philip James Bailey said: "Art is man's nature; nature is God's art"
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." Psalm 19:1
Much of my photographic work has occurred while backpacking in the high country of the Sierra Nevada Range of California. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area has allowed me to venture to many areas of beauty within a days drive.
