______

Most anyone can take a picture or create a graphic, I am not anyone. If I follow others, follow in their steps I will end up where they are going as well. So, I tend to do my own thing, make my own path. I take inspiration from others work; but, that is where it ends. I strive to make the eye smile by revealing the unseen, creating something never seen before, or show the ordinary in a fresh new way.

______

All my digital photography I shoot on an entry-level DSLR and 35mm film on a Pentax K1000.
