The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.

It is the source of all true art and science.

He to whom the emotion is a stranger,

who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe,

is as good as dead —his eyes are closed.

~ Albert Einstein

When I see that first, minuscule, curled, pale green wisp of a sprout

poking up between a couple of grains of vermiculite,

I hear God speaking.

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s all about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…

I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see, and everything to do with the way you see them.
