I recently came across the photostream of manyfires and it's a great stream. I highly recommend you visit it if you have time. But I mentioned her because of something I came across that she mentioned. It's about the word "take" when describing photographs. Like I took this picture, photo taken at...She brought up a point that we don't take it but we "create" something. I totally understand though the thought of "capturing" the moment but I totally agree with creating something when we photograph moments.
PS - I'm out of town on vacation and have limited time visiting your work. Will catch up when I get back next week.
