After falling in love with photography at a young age, I would shoot anything and eveything, mostly in black & white.  Black & white images are pure and intellectual.  Black & white has a depth that cannot be matched. However, as time has swept by, I tend to see the colors that surround me differently. They dance in my head in the most unlikely places...... in a tiny section of a wine glass or in the light that dances on a river.  Sometimes there are images to create from tree branches, or patterns on moss, or even the ceiling of a building as light pours through the open spaces.

Life is magical and beautiful, but even when it takes us to

the depths of hell & pain, there is light and color

to uplift our souls. 

                                  It is light that touches my soul.  

                              It is color that brings back my magic.
