When we photograph, it is a reflection of not just our talent but also of the values we
have formed during our lifetime.  I lived thorough the Depression and World War II, for
which I am grateful, as I now can see the world as a cup half full, not half empty.  Beauty
and art inspire, elevate, excite and exhilarate.
