Everyone once in a while, as a photographer, you’ll hit the nail on the head. You’ll make a picture, or if you’re lucky–a series, that is a perfect rendition of what you visualized in your head. Every so often, you’ll create something that goes beyond even your own expectations.

Forgive me if I sound pompous, but this doesn’t happen very often…I did it. Two weeks ago I was looking out my back window and I caught a glimpse of something. Not an image, but the potential for one. I grabbed my camera, and went outside in the rain, quickly snapping off 10 or so shots.

It was film, and I just got the prints back today. I can’t wait to share them, they are incredible, at least to me. I just need some time with them before I share.

They’re quiet, they’re pensive…dare I say, even sensual. I have a show coming up in April and I had already changed my mind a few times about which images to use.

These are the ones.
