"Life is so beautiful to me, I am constantly awed and inspired by the beauty that surrounds me, so much so that all I want to do is "Capture that moment in time Forever" with my camera. I am terribly distracted by color! I'm overwhelmed by the desire to capture it as I see it, brights, darks, brilliant hues and rich tones…. in all of their glory! Some times the beauty of a scene or situation completely captivates me and I'm compelled to photograph it until I've captured it perfectly. What an awful affliction to have!"
