Awakening

Awakening

The awakening to another amazing day in Ethiopia and am so mindful of what a truly fortunate man I am and how extremely grateful I feel for such a blessed life, a life that began in earnest almost immediately, when my oldest brother placed a camera in my hands and said, “I know you enjoy drawing and painting but you really should also try photography.” Within a week I gave up my brushes and acrylics and ever since my ‘art’ has been forever generated by first stepping up to a minuscule eye-piece that has allowed me to see a truly vast world of truly unlimited artistic potential but most of all, I am so, so thankful to everyone of you, to those I’ve known, met, seen, lectured, taught, photographed, emailed, and of course who have bought my many books and followed me here on Instagram! I am the photographer I am in large measure because of all of you and of course a special Happy Thanksgiving shout out to all of my American photographer friends! To all of you, please continue to join me in this amazing endeavor of image making and PLEASE, “You keep shooting!” Safe travels to everyone.
