By now tens of thousands of such moments fill my negative archives and hard disks along with the occasional pictures of “things” that caught the fancy of my shutter finger. A very select few escape the archive and appear on my web site or become a candidate for some other public viewing.
These pictures of particular humor, irony, melancholy, of startling incongruity, of humanity came from within in.
Who is to say how these reflect me, the photographer?

Just as the photographer longingly tries to chip away 30 years of lost opportunity to find Love, his lens continues to find otherwise lost slices of life that might have been his. These slices must say more about the photographer than he is aware of.
