Please know how grateful I am to those of you who visit this site and leave “likes” or comments. Unfortunately, time constraints prevent me from responding — as so many of you do on your own blogs — with personal messages expressing thanks. Although I remain largely incommunicado except for my images, I make it a practice to see what you’re up to, and regularly visit those sites whose work I especially resonate with.

Above all, I want to thank all of the photographers out there who add so much beauty to my day in the course of sharing your vision. I may wish that your awesome pictures didn’t also force me to work harder in trying to reciprocate, but that’s a small price to pay for such gifts.
