Labor Day Weekend 2009 - 310

For me, it all just seems to go together: words and images; advertising and photography; stories and pictures. Someone put a camera in my right hand and a plane ticket in my left and there was just no stopping me.

For a long time, all I wanted to be was a nomad and capture the images of faraway people and places.

But now I know I don’t have to go too far to capture a moment or a memory. An image snapped in a brief moment during a weekend trip to the lake says a thousand things. To me it speaks of summer and loyalty and laughter and freedom and of fun. It says open up your eyes because stories are all around us. We just have to remember to look for them.

And to listen.
