The thing is, we don't
always look our best. And even when we do, the face in the mirror is

No matter how far we get from the starting point, there's always something that calls us back. Early influences, first goals, original career choices--they all have a way of hanging around at the edges, only to show up strong somewhere down the line.

An ornate carriage and a proud family waited for the bride and groom to emerge from the church. The air was festive, with flower petals covering the cobblestones and the family members milling about.

Early in my photographic career, I found myself making images that I called "mistakes." This was because my favorite images were not always the ones that I intended to take, but in fact the ones that happened by "accident" I often liked better.
