There Is A Place

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”  
Ayn Rand

Photography, for me, is a quest to communicate on a very personal and emotional level.  
To fill in the spaces and voids that words can not. 
A visual attempt to speak directly from the heart so the image
is perceived as a feeling. 

In this journey, there are times when your hard work, 
dark hours and moments of discomfort lead you to a place.  
A place where the hour is right and the light is honest 
and the color comes from some higher power 
and you realize that your real life is in fact the adventure you always dreamed of.  
There is no other feeling more whole and validating than living in a dream that you created.
