I view the photographic works of others with mixed feelings. Sometimes people’s work blows me away – they are extremelyawesome. In the beginning, this daunted me, because I thought – how can I ever do THAT? But over time, I’ve watched others for inspiration and tried new things, and I may not be the best photographer out there, but... I like what I do.

The photos I publish tend to be ‘natural’ – NOT manipulations. I like to try and find perfect shots of my world, and rarely do I find them. Sometimes, I am my own worst critic – I may discard a hundred, two hundred shots, and post only one. But at the end of the day, I know that the works I have uploaded represent my view of the world around me.

I regret that I cannot share the rest of this world with you. Photos are good, but you miss out on the damp, chill morning air pressing on the skin, the musky scent of the farmland, freshly plowed, the sounds in the distance of a calf mooing, a dog barking. Still, here is what I can share.
