    If by "first series", you mean the Haystock rock series, then yes, that one has been printed, matted, framed, and hung in the living room.

    I understand the sentiment and previously concretely held the same view, I've slowly started to entertain the idea where it serves an artistic purpose, but I haven't fully convinced myself either.

    I like stories. This is my oldest daughter carrying her younger cousin on her back. The cousin's family was visiting for a few weeks, they currently live in Barcelona, and previously in Istanbul. We were staying in a beach house in a gated community called Surf Pines (rental courtesy of my in-laws), just north of the small town of Gearhart, Oregon. As soon as we pulled into the neighborhood I told my wife I was ready to move there. Windblown scraggly beach pines with about 600 yards of tall protected grasslands that separate the community from the beach. In most places the grasslands have a rise which obstructs the line of sight from the homes to the beach, which was the rental's only drawback. Second to last night a few of us walked through the grass (each home has a maintained path to the beach) to photograph the sunset. As I headed back, I got to the top of the rise I saw this image in the dusky just past sunset light. Quickly whipped out the camera, didn't check anything and shot 5 images. The camera was set for 1/15 of a second from shooting wide-angle landscapes so I had the 10-18mm lens mounted, but 2 of them came out sharp enough. One I converted to the blur, and the other I cropped to panoramic removing mostly clear sky and then converted to a grainy, moody black and white. I already miss that place, and this captures that mood.

    Most are not courageous enough to admit that.
