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.

I often wonder why birds run ...
... when they can, you know, fly. ... ;o7
I meant to post this for #SeagullButtSaturday this past weekend ... hah! ... but life's been shooting stuff at me like a tennis ball machine. Is anyone playing #SeagullButtSaturday anymore?
Another snap from Trey's recent #LAphotowalk in Santa Monica. It was fun watching these boys chase seagulls. As always, much fun and great people! Too funny, that I left my primary camera at home by accident (too rushed! ... ;oD), but had my second camera with me (the one I don't like as much ... heheh). It's the camera you have with you, though, so I had fun anyway.
