Last night I loaded my camera with some Ilford HP-5 black and white film. Now I just need to find things to photograph. I’m also excited to develop the roll of Velvia I just finished. It’s taken me so long I forgot what I photographed!

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
