Another day, another hot crusty caballero/philosopher making the best of a crumby day while dispensing half baked words of wisdom.

Sometimes the exhaustion hangs still like an oppressively humid heatwave that grounds the fireflies and leaves my words too tired to line up correctly. But there is, and will always be, an inexhaustable warmth and the promise of another sunrise. And another.

Yesterday's conversation with this epitome of a cleome covered her beautiful loxodrome and the precision of an osteotome. Moved on to macaroni and matrimony. The irony: later went for pizza but forgot to add pepperoni.

The Himalyan Monal is the feathered version of a rainbow. Their irridescent feathers are startlingly beautiful and cover a prominent white rump that is only visible when the Monal is in flight (or getting ready for bed.) For as long as I can remember, whenever I would approach a bird, I would quack like a duck. That this Monal responded makes perfect sense.

“The sun was shining on the sea,
Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
The billows smooth and bright
-- And this was odd, because it was
The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
After the day was done
-- "It's very rude of him," she said,
"To come and spoil the fun!"

The sea was wet as wet could be,
The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead
There were no birds to fly.

In a Wonderland they lie
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summer die.”
Lewis Carroll

I'm shooting in the rain
Just shooting in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again
I'm laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I've a smile on my face
I walk down the arbouretum
So happy to see 'em
Just shooting',
Flowers in the rain.

Story
Tagline
Passionate, award-winning photographer. Advertising Chief Creative Officer, too.
Introduction

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.

One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.

Happiness.

So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love. 

Alan Shapiro; Executive-Level Creative Guy and Very Passionate Photographer.
