Picture of the Month
OK, it is my grandson Theo, playing in the surf along the Oregon Coast. But it is a picture that not only captures him so well, but also seems to represent the spirit of childhood itself. Every generation seems to re-discover the exquisite pleasure of "playing chicken" with the advancing waves.
In other news, October has marked the creation of the International League of Conservation Photographers, of which I am a founding Fellow.
Our mission : to devote our skills and energy to advance the goals of conservation.
As photographers we have the opportunity -- and the responsibility -- to serve as the eyes of the world, at a time when threats to the environment seem greater every day.
Camera : Nikon D2X Digital
Life, Color, Drama, Reality .... No Digital Manipulation
