I was always the one not in the pictures as I was always taking them. In this life long process I learned the difference between a picture and a photo. A picture is what we take and a photo has a story. One of my greatest photographic thrills is to have people look at me when I'm photographing something, then look in the direction I'm photographing and look back at me. Then they look again at the direction I'm photographing. Seeing the look of what is he doing? What does he see? Fills me with the "What" the juice of my being?" Or to be asked: "How long did it take you to take that photo?" Answer: "All my life!" Or to be told: "I have a camera, I could take that photo." Reply: Great, go, do it, and find this moment for you. You'll enjoy it. This is not a technical book, it's a PHOTOGRAPHY IS FUN book and every photo has a STORY. The equipment doesn't make you a professional or even a good photographer. YOU DO! Technology rules in so much of our world. It answers our questions, computes our math, governs so much of our lives, tells us what month, day, and time it is, has taken society from knowing ones neighbors to not knowing who lives next door, but at the same time it has shrunk our world to bring us closer together in mind, body, and spirit. There is a saying: "We are all one people" and technology has brought that to the forefront more than before. At the same time it has challenged outdoor activities, social contact, and human nature. There are so many technical photography books but none that I know of tell the story of why the photo taken. I want people to learn how to see what others don't, to look for the banquet Mother Natures gives us everyday, to feel the photo, and to become aware of the pure fun and joy of photography.
