I love using the camera as a means to observe the world and my journeys large and small. I'm an amateur naturalist, always learning. "Each one of us adds a little to our understanding of Nature, and from all the facts assembled arises a certain grandeur." - Aristotle as quoted by Bradford Washburn.
I like nature, patterns, and books, but lots of things as well. I use flickr as kind of a memory palace - but also a way to link to others in the world that share common interests.
The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I have to admit that I haven't seen all 20,000 or so images on his stream, but I have to record that J Brew has taken some most interesting photos, has gone to amazing places, and shares many of the same obsessions. It is a bit scary to compare streams in some of the places we've both explored, since we sometimes found the exact same vantage point. You can see his humanity, knowledge, and sense of humor in many of these photos, which I am afraid is a bit of a rarity in flickrdom. It is a real treat to see his photos. I will look forward to more.Read less
