Love how the shot is defined by the lines which create shapes which anchor the kids.  I also love how one is frozen in time while the other just keeps moving :-)

The ocean within us


 wide  waters of life
a safe harbour 
invites to  linger


the ocean within us
wave by wave
is nourished

Flaring


the last rays
flaring shimmers of heat
hear the crickets song

Skyline of home



The architecture
of my home
are rolling hills, 
and green woods
 meadows full apple trees
small streams
and meandering rivers.

Story

Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham
Introduction
About Photography:

"Photography is a spiritual practice:
a discipline that allows me a thousand new perspectives on the world.
A discipline that takes me to a place of reverence. 
To a place where I can be  the watcher,
the appreciator, the celebrator and, ultimately,
just the lover of the incredible beauty it allows me to witness."
Dewitt Jones

“Every work of art has its necessity;  find out your very own. 
Ask yourself if you would do it
   if nobody would ever see it,
   if you would never be compensated for it,
   if nobody ever wanted it. 
If you come to a clear ‘yes’ in spite of it, then go ahead and don’t doubt it anymore.” – Ernst Haas

About "Learning to see":
"Don’t worry about being better than anybody you know personally or whose work you admire. Simply try to be better tomorrow than you were yesterday. You are not so much in competition with others as you are with yourself. Be your own toughest critic. Show only your best and develop your self-editing abilities so you know just what your best is. Beyond that,..., I’d suggest not spending all your time looking at other photographers but to look at other artists, painters, in particular, painters throughout the centuries. See how they take space and divide it, portion it out; how they capture your eye and attention with their use of a given space. How you put your pictures together is what will separate you from others, not in any revolutionary way, but in the way  you draw or do not draw a viewer in to your pictures. It’s not rocket science and it’s not necessarily even a craft now that digital imaging making prevails,  but it can be an art."
William A. Allard

About Artists:

About me:
I'm a man, a husband, a father, and a product manager most of the day.
The rest of my time I want to use my skills of photography to show others the beauty of the world as I see it!

About my photography:
If you would ask my what my style is,
than I would answer probably, that I don't have one specifc style.
And after two or three years thinking and searching about my style
I think I go with Guy Tal which written this wonderful article about "Forget Vision":
which simply says "Forget about personal style, forget unique vision"

"A word of advice: stop searching. Forget vision; forget personal style; forget unique voice. These are not goals, they are by-products. The most meaningful art you can make should not be about visual effects but about the way you respond to and interpret the world. Any consistency in style will emerge from a consistency in feelings, thoughts and contemplations. And when these change, the style should change with them. The things that make you unique are not ones you artificially impose on your work, but ones that evolve with it, and with you, along your journey; they are the sum-total of your life experiences, psyche, beliefs, ideas, skills, environments and influences. Embrace these and your work will be unique by virtue of you being unique. As articulated by Nietzsche: “At bottom every man knows well enough that he is a unique being, only once on this earth; and by no extraordinary chance will such a marvelously picturesque piece of diversity in unity as he is, ever be put together a second time.” Guy Tal

and
"Searching for a vision is futile; it is a moving target. The only way to find one’s vision once and for all, is to stop evolving as a person and as an artist" Guy Tal



Some of my  images are romantic, some moody, some dark, some tell about life, the streets or the seasons and some are abstract work or minimalistic.As a poet does not concentrate on one form of poems , I don't want to concentrate on one form of images or mood.
If anything I would say  I'm a visual poet which show his inner truth, his inner interpretation of the world around - this is the connection between  my images and subjects.
As mannifold as the forms of poetry as mannifold my images are.
