“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Photography is always a creative process in which I feel fully "in the moment" - whether I'm capturing the tranquil beauty of country road or the angles, lines and reflections in a modern skyscraper. I recognize that over the past year, photography has provided moments of respite from disturbing headlines and feeling of divisiveness in our country. I hope that 2018 brings us a renewed sense of compassion, decency, respect, understanding and unity.
What follows are a few of my favorite or most meaningful photos from the past year. Usually, once I post my annual "year in review," I question why I included some, and why I excluded others. I suspect that this collection is no different.
Best wishes for the holiday season and new year.
