I’m pleased to announce that, while a book of my photography is slated for official release on January 15, 2014, TODAY, I received a limited number of advance copies that are available to sell exclusively through my website just in time for the holidays!
MUSE-ings: Snapshots of the Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles features images from my daily meanderings in my neighborhood. Many of you who following my posts on Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and/or Facebook know that I’m an early bird. I can’t help myself — either from getting up at dawn or from taking photographs of what I see each day. Of course, getting up early has its rewards — I get to see the sun rise, stumble upon something created or left behind the night before, and greet the day in peace and solitude. It’s a contrast from the escalating pace and loudness of the rest of my day … in the early evening, I hit the “Repeat” button and I’m off again, walking my two dogs who drag me out the door. My morning and evening walks have become my meditation – time slows to a crawl, at least for those moments.
