Looking over the San Francisco Bay, a bird lets me capture her ardent survey of the city. It’s just there. I don’t invent it. I preserve it. Nothing is contrived. I find myself at 7000 feet of elevation with a view of what seems to be the whole world. I don’t choose to capture the breathtaking landscape but instead am compelled by the beauty of something I see everyday. He climbed the mountain with me. He absorbs the view and in that second, everything is at peace. That’s the moment. I capture it. I manipulate some images while many I leave raw, just as they present themselves. Perfectly flawed. I do not create the work, I record life. That slice of time is just waiting for someone to acknowledge that it exists. I am that witness. Art is everywhere. Waiting for us to see it, capture it, and share it with people.
