  Today in some comments on G+ one person made the statement about how my image really conveyed something special (not this one, but I feel this is another good example) because of the eye contact and how eyes are truly the gateway to the soul. That is so true and it is almost narcotic when I get good eye contact from a candid subject. […]

  I've been spending most of my photo sharing and social media interaction time on Google Plus these days. In the last couple of days Google has added circle sharing to the mix and my follower count instantly quintupled. no I don't care about high school-like popularity contests of who has the most followers. I […]

Someone said this shot reminds them of Jack Lemmon...I can see that. I think I achieved in capturing some of the man's humanity. Hope you can feel that. Robert Wyatt-Shipbuilding

A street photographer is captivated by faces and facial expressions. We are always hoping to capture one with edge or extra gravity. Every picture tells a story... Thin Lizzy-Jailbreak

I hadn't used my 28mm lens in a while-it's a wide angle for those that are interested. What that means to those who don't know is that the the focal plane (the perspective you see in frame) is wide. I fall in and out of love with all my lenses. I rotate through them. They […]

Different lenses react differently to light and the lack thereof. One of the things I like about this lens is the pretty blurring or light trails it renders in the presence of lower light. Brian Eno-In Dark Trees
