The edges


"I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don't find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges."

Four months

I'm getting married in four months at this lovely location.

I was wondering tonight why we feel the need to talk about ourselves as often as we do. This cannot be (it isn't) as interesting to other people as we think it will be.

However, almost everyone can appreciate an interesting photograph, so there's a compromise.

I came across this anonymous quote -- "You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it." -- that I thought was nicely put.

All the photographs here are taken by me, unless I cite otherwise. They likely won't be anything to be too proud of, but there you go. :)
