The Greek roots of the word photography translate as "writing with light." Welcome to my studio--a place to practice and illuminate good work using writing and photography.

Thinking like a mama sparrow

Sh-sh-sh-sh. Hear that pounding little ones?
Footsteps, getting louder. 
Stay down, stay here, and stay quiet until I return my darlings.
There it is, just as I thought--a waffle-footed giant coming this way.
Over here you interloper, see me here on the path?
Let's play tag. I'll run, you try and catch me.
Wait! Why are you stopping?
This way you beast.
No, don't stop, I'm over here.
Yes, that's right, keep coming. This way!
Come along you monster. Yes, yes you're almost there.
That should be far enough. Time to fly.
Better luck next time giant.
