my background in photography isn't interesting.  the publications i haven't had and the awards that i haven't won aren't interesting.

but despite this, the photographs i take can be interesting.

sometimes the photographs don't turn out how i planned, don't capture what i see, don't tell the story.  weather, animals, people, inanimate objects refuse to cooperate and sometimes yes, the ISO does matter... sometimes they're just shit.

but sometimes the stars align, the planning pays off, everything comes together in a fusion of light and shadow, colour and tone, balance and composition and they tell a story, capture a moment that can never be recreated, offer a perspective that would otherwise be unseen and... i'm happy with them.
