Sometimes I find myself in a place, in a moment, in a state of wanting not to photograph; just to take it all in. It is at these fleeting moments I wish my minds eye could rotate the dial and expose the negative for me so I could just enjoy the positive moment for myself. But alas, the need to convey what I see outweighs my own ambitions. I live vicariously through the lens after the fact unless I don’t. It is in those latter times I feel most alive.
