claire, my lovely and kind friend, has been sweet enough to give this award to me. thank you claire! it means so much to me. this award is special because: "this blog invests and believes in PROXIMITY—nearness in space, time and relationships. these kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. "
i am learning so much about you all, and really appreciate those who take the time to learn more about me, leave such kind comments, and share their views with me.
and so with love and thankfulness (and great happiness, too), i pass this award on to:
"Above all, it's hard learning to live with vivid mental images of scenes I cared for and failed to photograph. It is the edgy existence within me of these unmade images that is the only assurance that the best photographs are yet to be made."
