It's spring! Birds are flying north. People are flying south. I flew west and found these birds!
I normally don't seriously take photos of birds or animals. I usually prefer nature and it's organic color and texture. This time however I couldn't resist these active and unique birds on the shores of the Pacific. It was though these birds were waiting for me. They posed for me as well as took off on my time. My most favorite was watching the little birds all lined up out running the waves. It's amazing to me that they always could.
I hope you enjoy these bird photos. I sure fell in love with them and this big ocean. If you like birds and would like a photo, please mail me for information.
The nature of life is change, a slice of time which is unique from the moment I capture it. I try and stay tuned into the presence of each moment, so I am able to see the beauty that surrounds me. Even though beauty is subjective, it is something I recognize unmistakably and immediately. Beauty has the ability to inspire me. What is the purpose of art if not to inspire and conjure emotions and ideas, whatever they may be? From a single photograph, a single vision or impression, my art charts its own course to canvas and sculpture. I hope to help those who view my art to feel connected to nature. Perhaps it will not always be obvious, but my goal is to have the viewer see in a new way and feel a new appreciation for what is around us.
