I create pictures.
Images, photographs, snapshots, exposures, paintings, drawings, sketches are all the same, they’re pictures. A picture is part of a visual language that transcends cultures, nationalities, race, religion and possibly species.
Because I lack even the basic Neanderthal talent of scratching a lump of charcoal against a cave wall my picture making tool is a camera.
With a camera I strive to visually express how I see the world. I’m not exactly sure why I do this, other than it’s a creative output and I have the ability to contribute something that knows no boundaries.
The camera is my tool so I’m a photographer. My pictures are not just portraits, scenery, action, landscape, street, abstract, macro, art or fine art. They’re just pictures by a photographer. I’ll leave it to others that know about these things to classify my pictures by genre and artistic quality.
I believe those that are curious about others and are looking to experience a different perspective of their world enjoy seeing pictures made by others. I offer my contribution here.
