Although I’ve been taking photos for the past 25 years or so, it wasn’t until I bought a digital SLR camera in September of 2008 that I truly took steps toward understanding some the basics of photography such as lighting, composition and depth of field. Since that time, a hobby has been slowly evolving into a passion.

Most of the images in my photostream were created as expressions of an idea or concept presented as a learning challenge. These challenges are part of a on-line photography group that encourages the development of photographic skills and a basic understanding of photographic style. Over time, this approach has taught me to see more detail in the world around me and appreciate how light and shadow define space.

"We gaze continually at the world and it grows dull in our perceptions. Yet seen from another's vantage point, as if new, it may still take the breath away."

    "Just wanted to say a few things about Wes.
    I started on Flickr a year ago not knowing anyone and well his work was the first to catch my eye. I know it sounds "stalkerish" but I really enjoyed his images and some of the first groups I joined was because I followed him in.
    A year later my secret is out (I confessed), but I continue to admire his work, his imagination is inspiring, I often find myself just waiting to see what he will come up with next. As a photographer he is willing to try anything and his work shows his flexibility and talent. He is always helpful with a critique or an observation, and his knowledge for excellent articles and links about photography has helped me as well.
    So I continue and .....................will continue to admire his work, it is really worth the time to check out his stream............
    Thanks Wes, you are truly talented,
