Blogging and I have a love/hate relationship and we weren’t speaking for quite a while, but now…
we are back together – well, it was a very heartfelt reunion.

Anyway I have a few posts in the works so stay tuned.

Recently the Wall Street Journal published a photo I took at Kerner Estate as the feature shot to accompany a story about Bruce and Joanne Kerner’s property sale.

David Griffin on how photography connects us

Below is a fantastic TED Talk given by David Griffin, the photo director of National Geographic. David gives us a unique look at how National Geographic’s images come to be and he also explains the power of photography in general.
As David says, even the most average amateur photographers will take a few amazing pictures in their lives but a professional has to do it all the time.

It is a 15 minutes video and it is worth to watch it to the end.
