It's not all about the camera. It's not about the pixel count or the
memory card.

"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity
that will never cease looking back at you." -Brigitte Bardot

An Amazon review is worth a thousand words.
For my pictures, the goal is to leave the viewer breathless.

  • • Timing
  • • Framing
  • • Movement
  • • Perspective

The most important function of the camera I took to Japan in 2005 was that I could turn off the synthetic shutter noise—

I could only shoot for about 5 hrs a day before both of my lithium-batteries died. The largest card I had was 256MB, smaller than a sitcom on iTunes and as big as a silver dollar. I had to download the photos every night to my laptop in order to be able to shoot again the next day.

In 3 weeks, I shot 3751 photos (2.36gb or 104 rolls of Kodachrome)
and I'm still hungry for more.

I shall return.

Lotus of the Rising Sun

Japanese art is traditionally built on the romance of the microcosm. The garden, minimalist yet reveling in excess, acts as a flattering mirror. Nature tamed, we project mastery of our world. We only see what we want to see.

¤ However ¤

It is thru illusion that we allow ourselves to dream, and through dreaming create a better world for us all. Life becomes art becomes reality.
