now
lemme just say

there are different ways to look at the same thing

and

i got more shit here than you can look at
or
care to

there are some needles in this haystack if i do say so...jump right in

beyond that.....

mine is not a portfolio

not intending to tell a tail
or write a story
with images

but sometimes
it just turns out that way

most of the time it is this big kitchen table
where i toss things when i pass
stopping
or returning
from time to time
to have a look

(while realizing this is a storage place as much as anything)

so then, well, why not make it a musical

.....go to the first page
click the slideshow link
turn on some music
and watch
then
get back to me
and tell me about my mediocrity
skate!
i'll be over here watching the boys play

    """Wow-what a wonderful surprise! jim's photos are like a travel adventure. The shots are are very unique-one minute you are in a the very dark contrast that shadows his portraits and the next minute your in a bright beautiful space I think the site is more like a photo journey. It is one I have enjoyed taking and will continue to come back for the ride. A super image trip!"""

    "Jim takes long bike rides with his Canon, and always finds something new and different in what to many would be humdrum and unnoticed. I know his community well, having lived there. Many would say it is scarcely a place of beauty; just a smallish rust belt industrial city. Yet Jim makes art of it and in it on a regular basis. I sense that photography for him is a conversation or interaction with his environment and its light, colors, people, and shapes that is deeply fulfilling to him."
