This marks my entry into the public domain, revealing my private photographic journeys. The sights that captivate me, whether by the light, face, gesture, posture, setting, etc. are visualized first through my eyes and then made permanent via my camera's lens. My wanderings which produce these visual records of my daily life lead inevitably to thoughts. The ideas triggered by these sights become mini- photo essays on philosophical subjects which help me investigate the nature of existence.

my Birthday - "Renascence" - a Poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay


Came down and settled over me;        

Forced back my scream into my chest,

Bent back my arm upon my breast,

And, pressing of the Undefined

The definition on my mind,

Held up before my eyes a glass        

Through which my shrinking sight did pass

Until it seemed I must behold

Immensity made manifold;

Whispered to me a word whose sound

Deafened the air for worlds around,        

And brought unmuffled to my ears

                    The gossiping of friendly spheres,

                                            The creaking of the tented sky,

The ticking of Eternity.


I saw and heard and knew at last        

The How and Why of all things, past,

And present, and forevermore.
