"The "interestingness" of things and ideas in the world is entirely built by perception. there is constantly room to be fascinated if we put down our habitual beliefs, our preconceptions, and simply allow it. a person of any age has the power to see with the fresh eyes and wonder possessed by all children. who knows this better than photographers -- we who can spend years photographing flowers and sunsets and see something new in the combinations of light and color each time. when we get bored or fall into a rut its not time to clean the lens or buy new gear; its time to reboot our way of seeing, to re-discover the eternal freshness of the world."

Let's consider what Monet says about his work. Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love - Claude Monet.

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Mark Twain

"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is creative art.
When I'm ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye some-
thing that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I'm interested in something
which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without."

    "Wow, I can say so much about this man, but I think I will controll myself ! I have really enjoyed Kenneth's artistic flair and witty sense of humor. I think he's a very talented photographer! I'm glad he lives so far away from me cuz I would be out of a job if he lived here! Really though if you haven't visited his photostream, you need to! My favorites are his "Celebrity Birds of Prey",great stuff!!!Keep up the good work Ken! Your friend, John "Q""

    "k.barker only took up photography a matter of months ago (as at 24/5/09,) and is producing some fantastic reults, especiialy when you consider he's working with a compact camera (panasonic tz5).
    This is probably (moslty) down to his artisitic nature. Who knows what levels he''ll reach when he takes the leap and buys an SLR!
