It is said that gratitude is the most healthful emotion. I would argue humility is part and parcel of being grateful. Proximity to the infinite, and the infinitesimal, can elicit feelings of gratitude. The product of clicking a shutter is a humble response to these cosmic places and making photographs is my way of responding and sharing. This, I believe, is a fundamental responsibility in this life.
Looking and seeing are always on for me. It might be on the rim of the Grand Canyon, obviously, or it may be in a booth at a diner. Look and dream and manipulate perception from what's under your nose. In this case it was a BBQ joint with a cow skull on the table.
