I take photos of many things -
Photography for me is a moment, a certain light, a gesture, a confluence of objects or people, light, and luck. Sometimes it is hard to explain but you know it when you see it. In that moment magic happens.
I have a weakness for certain subjects, a little kid wondering at a crack in the sidewalk, two old people sharing a memory, a grandfather touching his grandson, a mother frowning at muddy shoes, a little girl finding her first worm, the first smoke of a Merlin engine coming to life, the light of the morning sun on fog in a valley three thousand feet below, a hummingbird flaring its tail, a guitarist when he "nails" it, the pelicans skimming along above the water with the Owyhees rising behind them, and high thin strands of ice crystals in a dark blue Idaho sky. Beauty might be in the eye of the beholder but here in Idaho it's almost everywhere you look.
Bottom line - photography is fun and sometimes magic happens.
