There's a rare moment many photographers and artists may know. It's when you look through the viewfinder or computer screen and suddenly realize the shot or image is exactly perfect. It's almost a magical shiver; it hits you and you just stop. Click the shutter. Save the file. Don't touch a thing. The next photo or the next edit cannot equal it.  There's another moment too. The one which makes it all worthwhile. When a viewer seems truly touched. When the second remark is greater than the first.

My inspiration for photography began early as my parents returned from a trip to Asia with images of an exotic world of mystery and adventure. Before long I was outfitted with a camera and learned how to use our darkroom. The techniques I learned growing up transcended the film era to digital. My interests include a strong passion for night photography-hence "Writing With Dark;" as well as spacecraft, architecture, landscapes, clouds, nature and official Washington; and a different angle on anything! Often my work involves a slow shutter-which ironically 'speeds up' the action in the shot.

"If I saw something in my viewfinder that looked familiar to me, I would do something to shake it up."
