I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!
I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.
Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.
Let me begin with this:
I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Wishing you a week of smooth sailing!
I decided to keep shooting with my long lens all last week (you never know when an opportune #seagullbutt may present itself ... ;o7) ... so, to get the full vista, this shot was done from a panorama of about 10 images (on the vertical). No mean feat getting it all put together ... ('cuz waves move, ya know ... ;oD). At one point it was a 191 megapixel shot! The original full stitch when finished is still 12698 pixels wide. A little encouragement for those who have smaller cameras––you can still get a lot out of them, you just have to work a bit more for it ... ;o)
