"Photography is truth."–Jean-Luc Godard

One of the many challenges of being a photographer, besides the obvious one of location and lighting, is finding the person on the other side of the lens.

It is one of my favourite things about photography. Whether it be a person, a place or an item, I love to try and figure out its story from the other side of my lens. That is what I feel is true photography. The discovery of life, people and stories.

It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanness. –Paul Strand



Call me crazy. Oh, wait, I am. All that aside, however, I figured out how Zack gets all his photos to be so lovely through Flickr. It's fantastic. I'm very happy, at the moment.

I'm working a lot, in school a lot and happy a lot.

Side notes:
1) "Very" is not a word.
2) Student journalists: the first time you use an acronym in a story (no matter how "familiar" it seems) you ALWAYS SPELL IT OUT. kthxbai.
3) I know this is the Pacific Northwest. It rains here. Can you just learn to see the beauty in the rain as well as in the sun?

Ah, Autumn is so lovely. I am consistently being romanced by the leaves' perfume, wind's caress and rain's symphony.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I left a Eggo in the toaster and now it's sure to be chilly. I also have a speech tomorrow morning. Hm, we'll see how this goes.

Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut more or less started the French New Wave movement in cinema.
