These images were captured with my cell phone. I like to take pictures when I'm out on a leisurely stroll or out for lunch. Sometimes nature will make me stop and think about what is important in my life. It might bring a smile to my face or remind me of something good from the past. These pictures are part of an ongoing project of seeing the world closer than I normally would—perhaps from a bug's eye view. I hope you like them as much as I do.
I have always loved this particular drive in Malibu. As you go through Malibu Canyon, there is a road called Piuma Road, and on the top of that road is this view! Right here in L.A.—minutes from the insanity—this view is available to everyone. It always reminds me of some ancient Asian painting. I hope you enjoy it.
This is exactly what I want to do with my life—take pictures. I have just quit my job and will be looking to take classes in photography and other ideas for future work. I would love to have a chance to show my work. Photography is what I have a passion for, and now is the time for me to do something about it now that I am not working.
This simple picture is one of my favorites from this spring. It is made in a park in Riga, and it completely reflects the feeling of the spring here. Everything is fresh, full of light, aromatic air, many different tones of green and peace. Joyful and relaxing peace.
