I’ve had this blog for a few years now and I’ve resisted putting up an “About” page because who I am today will not be who I am tomorrow. In following the idea of “capturing the illusion”, I will provide a few captures.
Historical capture: Like so many of you, I have been interested in photography since I was very young. After securing my first, full-time job, I bought a nice SLR with an assortment of lenses, filters, etc. Quite a number of years ago, the camera and some of my other equipment was stolen during a smash and grab from my vehicle. It dealt me a double blow. First, I was not in a financial position to replace the equipment but more devastating was the feeling that I’d lost a friend I couldn’t, and didn’t want to replace. Many years later, I received my first DSLR as a gift and found that old flames can, be reignited. I was fortunate enough to spend some time where a local college offered a good photography program. I enrolled in a few classes but truly, most of what I know about post-production has been self-taught. I’d very much like to take classes or find a tutor so that I can continue to learn.
Emotional Capture: There have been many dark years in my life. I am thankful, now, that I survived them. Art, was an important element in trying to communicate the intense weight of darkness that conventional language most often could not bear. There was writing, and poetry and now, once again, photography. Photography – light writing. Light… there is light, once again, in my life.
Attitude Capture: My blog has no real theme. I am interested in too many things to limit it to a single subject. I could split the subjects out into different blogs but…at this time I don’t want to. Tomorrow? Who knows.
Meta Data: Please note that this is my work. You have my permission to re-blog my posts or share them on social media with proper credit/acknowledgment given to me.

I am very honored on those occasions I am nominated for a blogging award but at this time, I would prefer to keep the blog, award-free however…I AM hoping Freshly Pressed finds me someday 🙂
I am so pleased that each and every person who stops by my blog, if only for a quick glimpse, found a reason to do so. I hope you found something interesting, enlightening, or entertaining.
