Withdrawn…for a Reason

“Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don’t want it. What appears bad manners, an ill temper or cynicism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone.” – Miller Williams


Capturing Life is My Art

“Life is your art. An open, aware heart is your camera. A oneness with your world is your film.” – Ansel Adams

“Capturing Life One Image at a Time” – Robyn Graham

I thought the quote above by Ansel Adams went nicely with my “tag line” – “Capturing Life One Image at a Time”, thus the pairing with a self-portrait.

More to See

“We must beware of committing the fatally common fallacy of assuming that all we see is all there is to see.” – C. W. Leadbetter

More than Just a Window

Compassion is…

Compassion is to share the pain without sharing the suffering. – Shinzen Young

My heart feels your pain even when my physical being does not. I have compassion.

The Mystery of Self

This image was taken in a small New York City Restaurant.  One wall of the restaurant was covered with a vintage mirror.

Self portrait in vintage mirror.  The quality of the mirror (scratches, bows, etc.) distorts the image and makes it have a mysterious, almost supernatural feel.
