I'm Back

Hi all,

I'm back after a long absence, engaged in a newfound serious hobby: photography

June 23 I bought a Nikon D40 and fell in luv; the beginning of Dec I added a D300 and now I'm driven.

I'll start with something that stuck in my head after spending some time with the primates at the Toronto Zoo: every once in a while you have an intense exchange of emotion and intimacy with another living thing - and when you capture it with the camera it's called a portrait.

I find it fascinating that with both writing and photography words and images are a reflection of the perception of the image maker. Both can be intensely personal, although this is neither necessary, nor sufficient to create compelling work...
