Nothing is only as it seems, even the most ordinary is in fact extraordinary.
Master Tung-kuo asked Chuang Tzu, "This thing called the Way-where does it exist?"
Chuang Tzu said, "There's no place it doesn't exist."
"Come," said Master Tung-kuo, "you must be more specific!"
"It is in the ant."
"As low a thing as that?"
"It is in the panic grass."
"But that's lower still!"
"It is in the tiles and shards."
"How can it be so low?"
"It is in the piss and shit."
I value vision and soul, and am skeptical about effects - digital or analog. I prefer small cameras I can take anywhere/anytime.
"When a photographer is in complete communion with his or her subject, to a point where both subject and photographer have merged (...), the camera photographs by itself. What is the cause of the photograph? Is it the photographer, the subject, the camera? Is it all three? Or is it none of them?"

We don't see beings or objects, we see the light energy they reflect.
If you used to be on my contact list but no longer are, it's because I haven't heard from you in long enough that I figure you've lost interest. Since I try to review my contact's images on a daily basis, I have to focus on active relationships.
Please: No award or other icons. I appreciate the intention and am grateful for the encouragement, but I like my pages to keep a "clean" look - it's an esthetic thing. Thank you for understanding.

"Alexis is one of the finest photographers I have seen on flickr and I just noticed that no one has written a testimonial about him yet. What a shame so let me be the first. This guy rocks, he posts amazing stuff, CHECK HIM OUT!"
