"The site is best viewed using Microsoft Internet Explorer at 1024x 768."--a.k.a. the writing on the wall

The question posed above was the first reaction to the news about the new Zeiss Ikon rangefinder 35mm in Japan, and perhaps in the US and the rest of the world, when the new camera was unveiled at photokina 2004.

Through photography, we can express our fascination with flowers and share it with others. Whether you enjoy shooting close-ups of a bud unfolding, or a field of wildflowers in the...

While wandering through the museum in the Mexican city of Queretaro, I spotted a group of children taking a break from their art class to eat lunch. I began following them with the intention of taking a few candid photographs when one of the girls noticed my camera.

Well, I don't know if I should really call this a self-assignment, as it came my way when I was called upon to supply a chapter for a book. The only problem with the assignment was that I only had 30 days to complete it, including illustrations. Even though I have done just about everything in photography from...
