Photographs are part of our legacy. They allow us to share and communicate. Photography allows us to expose our inner emotion and inner thoughts to a wide range of people, while still telling the story of the subject. Capturing the images of daily life is important, but far more important is what is contained in those images.

It is through photographs that life is shown, and the every day beauty of the world around us is shown.

Below are some photos that I’ve taken and the stories that go with them. While you click through, please take a moment to read the captions, and if possible, take the time to learn the history and stories of the places I’ve captured here.
