“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.“  This quote from Henry David Thoreau has provided a definition and direction for my photography in the years since my transition from simply capturing shots to creating images.  The Creation of an image must begin first with a creation by Nature or Man, then the eye to Look, the mind to See, and then the finger to push the button to Capture the image.  That process has led to a vision that my images must be Personal, and not Predictable.  I have learned that it takes more than just holding down the button, and I still have a lot to learn.  The older I get, the more I realize how little I know.
