Those who know me from social media sites like Facebook know well that I tend to have opinions on just about all things happening in our world today. As an avid travel photographer, I get great satisfaction taking friends on the journey with me. A picture may indeed be worth a thousand words, but my driving philosophy is that words contribute a richer, more personal depth to imagery. It probably says a lot that I do not Tweet; it's far too easy to spend more time counting your words than focusing on their breadth and depth.
I have been thrilled and encouraged that followers have expressed an ongoing interest in following my photographic work (travel or daily life) and in reading my social posts.
While I try to keep my subject matter well-rounded, there is no doubt my posts are colored by today's twisted political scene, evolving world events and their impact on the world as I see it.
For me, writing is a highly enjoyable, therapeutic form of expression; communicating with those who agree, disagree or remain somewhere in between is equally important in today's divided landscape. My mantra is that you can easily under-communicate, but you can never over-communicate...
So, please join me -- when you're up for it -- for some photographic journeys, personal observations and an open, positively charged two-way dialog! Comments are encouraged and welcome.
