Why must we worship when life is crashing down? Why must we raise our gaze when there are a world of things that just need to be set straight? Is that an excuse to be irresponsible, to avoid or ignore the issue? Hands and feet, right? God gave us a brain, yes? I think it’s […]

A quick shout out to this girl. My wife and my partner. She always does the final “whittling” of my images, narrowing down my shots to the best of the best before I work on them. When she does this, I can’t be in the room because it’s like watching someone hack away with a […]
