An unexpected day's adventure with an experience that has yet to be matched. Fresh into a journey to travel around the world recording the year of 2000. The con-crescent between one millennium and another and what the world "was" at that moment in time.
War is most certainly a fact of our existence and I was fortunate to skip it when turning 18 at the end of the Viet Nam war in 1974. I had learn to hunt and shoot as a natural part of growing up in Montana, but I have never had to take aim at a man and pull the trigger... not with a gun anyway. I shoot every image I take. Environment to eye, to mind, to heart, shoot.
Bam! Bam! Bam! Sounds different when it comes out of the end of the gun than the slam of motor drive winding. Grenades and smoke and hate and guns and nobody is to certain of all the why's. Bam! Bam! Bam! I got everything that I aimed at that day, not a bad day of hunting.
