sake is the haiku of the body,
haiku is the sake of the heart.

I sometimes make notes here on photography, software, books, graphic design, some poetry, and other things i really like and dislike. i treat it like a shared notebook with external links. it does not cover my history, details of my family, other skills and interests. [i think of all so-social networking as a theatre of matryoshka dolls. it stops me from assuming too much. what you see is much less than what you may get.]
i have several albums of images here and more gets added when I have the time. i don't try to "freeze" moments with my camera; I let them flow, I let them move and capture me. to paraphrase thomas merton, photography enables me to find myself and lose myself at the same time. I work abstracts, shallow depth of field, motion. I'm a long time nikon user.
I hope you find something of lasting value in my stream. enjoy.
