There are times when I'd rather not have a camera with me. It can be cumbersome. I sometimes get tired of standing out as I take pictures in public places. And yet, these pictures I take of my everyday life create a record of my days. On the rare day when I don't take any pictures, I'm left with the feeling of that day having slipped away from me. And I often think about how these images I take in so many ways are also images of your everyday life too; whether you live where I do or halfway around the world. Whether you're able to meet a friend for coffee as I am in these images, or look forward to it or reminisce about it. So I guess you could say photography also makes me feel a greater connectedness. And I am so grateful for this record of my days, and for that connection I have with all of you.
