Every year my family journeys from our home in Texas to spend a few summer weeks at our house on Cape Cod. In the fall I usually return to the Cape by myself for a month.

Gather 'round, guys. Right here, around the campfire. Closer...that's it. There's something we have to talk about, something I want you to do. I want you to shoot more like women.

Maybe it's the approaching holiday season that made me think of this--you know, books as gifts for friends and relatives who travel and take pictures--or maybe it's the impending move of my home and studio, and the cardboard boxes I've got lined up in which to pack my collection of books.
