Wonder

Wonder/Curiosity/Serendipity I haven’t landed on the perfect word for this core business value but I’m hoping you can feel the gist.  After almost 20 years of professional shooting its easy to take the same approach, the safe shot, to pick up the favorite lens, to assume I know what’s coming next.  Sometimes I have done…

Boundaries

Arbus is no fan of wash day.   This is a snippet from the weekend, my son at the ready with the hose and spraying his father mostly.  Arbus gave me her brave smile which eventually gave way to the, “help me momma!/clubbed baby seal” face. Its time to face some of the lies I’ve told…
