Moments Like These

It is, for moments like this that I became a photographer. Georgia my wife, partner and best friend of 28 years...and I still get those butterflies in the stomach feeling. How do you make that feeling last. You can't. And I suppose you shouldn't...it'd be too much. So we, photographers, look for these kind of moments and do our best to capture them, immortalize them, put them in print or online.

"To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy." Henri Cartier-Bresson
