(Blackberry Storm Phone Camera Photo)

Ya' just never know where creativity geographically might stems from. It can spring from writing on napkins in restaurants, or pecked on laptops at bookstore cafes.

"In a restaurant one is both observed and unobserved. Joy and sorrow can be displayed and observed “unwittingly,” the writer scowling naively and the diners wondering, What the hell is he doing? Then, again, the writer may be truly unobserved, which affects not a jot the scourge of popular opinion on his overactive mind."

David Mamet, “Writing In Restaurants”

If you like my approach to arts and entertainment photography please think about me when you need head shots, unit or other arts and entertainment photography. Also I always appreciate comments about my work and any ideas for possible creative projects.

Shutter of my camera’s recollection, what is it you fancy me to notice here now? What accidental or intentional defining, onion-revealing? I will improvise on all this impossible behavior and geometry. I fear they are short-lived in this fleet light of my prying. What meaning of them and this moment is to be revealed? And what might I reveal about me? Yes, Henri, “sharpness is a bourgeois concept.” Yet my lens is sharper than my wit. So chance and accident, please lend a hand in this physical and visual place somewhere in this stream of time. Isn’t it born of so many unspoken feelings and a milieu of conditions and presuppositions? Standing now at these crossroads of physical and psychological space, my camera and I rely on uncompleted skill and whatsoever muses? Now, viewer, these photographs remain an incomplete utterance without you who see them with new eyes. What now do these photographs say of you?
