Anyone can doodle with pen and pencil and draw whatever lines and shapes they fancy. And anyone can pick up a brush or spray can and paint away with gusto and glee. Digital tools, like camcorders, cell phones, and cameras make it easy for anyone and everyone to shoot away at any subject at any time and any place they desire.
The only limit to creativity is the desire and freedom to think and express ourselves with the tools at our disposal. Of course, we express with our feelings, thoughts, attitudes, and desires. So I believe that photography is one of the freest means of artistic expression we have at our disposal every day and everywhere we go. We can shoot the sublime or the banal, the beautiful or the ugly, the delicate or the crude, the gracious or the rude.
What we shoot is what we see. And how we shoot hopefully reveals what we think about the world around us and the people we meet.
I look forward to the spring and summer months when the weather is warmer, and the days are longer, and when the sun plays with the sky and earth as it moves lazily along is course. What variety of hue, color, shadow, and tone. Who needs a studio - the earth is mine!
