View to a New City Line. As MGM continues its construction of the Casino in Springfield, Mass, I utilized a now closed walk over bridge gate, to 'frame' the Citys tallest buildings, at least for now.

Bird photography is always one of the most difficult styles in the business. From just perfectly tack sharp, near perfect shots, to capturing that 1 unique pose, with some luck. This is maybe a combo of both, in any event, you view more great images on Nikon's Image Space, where enthusiasts, up and comers, and top rated Pro photographers display their photos.

Living in a City, and my Studio surrounded by Commercial Buildings, (requiring numerous extra power, cable, etc, lines overhead), early on I began to feel like I had no opportunity, until I was back out on the road.
1000's of incredible cloud formations with bright sun beams slicing through, sunrises, SO MANY Moon Phases on the Horizon filling my viewfinder.....along with intrusive poles, wires, or heat Stacks, I was nearly ready to give up on attempting, 'spontaneous' photography. That was @ 2007 at this point, and believe me I was discouraged.
The story attached is great, and it is very similar to the breakthrough I also had, allowing me to embrace my surroundings and incredibly draw inspiration for my Documentary Film,(in production). My story is a bit more in depth, so I'll share that separately, but ultimately I learned nearly a Decade Ago one of the best lessons I think every photographer should embrace; 'A Photographer takes photos, An Artist MAKES photos', I think you get the idea.....enjoy!

I'm nearly inactive as I am battling a rare auto immune disease. I've undergone 5 hand surgeries as such gripping my equip., is impossible. My commitment to Animal rights Activism, is still my main philanthropy, be it sifting my image banks, archives, or iphoneography.
So here are a few hopefully enjoyable images, Peace, Cheers, and Help stop animal abuse/neglect. Lifegiant

To not read this article would truly be a lost opportunity. To miss out on one of the World's most incredible Artisans, IMVHO, and her paintings would be a shame. In a time when true, deep inspiration is a hard sought commodity, 1 Artist and her work are an absolute goldmine. Please enjoy!!! #IncredibleArt, #Lifegiant
