French Philosopher Marcel Proust once said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."  As a photographer, I enjoy the challenge of isolating beauty from the noisy world around us.  Regardless of the subject, everything has its beauty.  My photography reflects how I wish the world looked to the naked eye, free of distraction and noise. While looking at my work, I hope you see this beauty with new eyes and appreciate these vignettes of light and time.
