"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

Passion

“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke” ~Vincent Van Gogh~
 
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." ~Aaron Sussman~
 
Photography is an austere and blazing poetry of the real. ~Ansel Adams~

 
Photography is my meditation.~Czar Anthony Lopez~

There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself,
 for what we see is what we are. ~Ernst Haas~


"I just wish that she would stop saying "Smile Carl."

A-MAZ-ING shots! Are all of them with the macro lens, and are you shooting in raw? (For the uninitiated...I said "are you shooting in raw", not "are you shooting in the raw!")LOL
My favorites are the first one and the shot of your dog. Superb!
