Taking photographs instead of pictures is what I try to do.
By that, I mean the image must mean something: emotionally, intellectually, and/or aesthetically. To accomplish that is a great challenge.
Inside these pages are some photographs I believe achieved that goal. There are also some I thought fell short. However, those photographs are included because to my surprise many people thought they fit the above definition.
Several of those turned out to be award winners and best sellers—those which I thought were just so-so photographs.
It always amazes me that some of my photographs, which I think are clunkers, are the ones that get the most attention.
But, as they say, "It's in the eye of the beholder".
