I go everywhere with a camera. I can’t help it. I have three on my desk as I write this. My family and friends put up with me clicking away with wry amusement.

Anticipating. Holding my breath. And then it’s gone. A capture of a sliver of time. That’s how I work. There is nothing more satisfying than to read the notes from my clients.
