"I'm addicted to taking photos and to the beauty of Vermont. I have tons of 'pretty pictures.' There is nothing wrong with that, but I started thinking about some of my other images: fungi, decay, pollution, the underside of things, the harshness of winter. And you know what? It is all beautiful! Beauty, art, and creativity must be important because they surround us. While the functional items made by humans may hit the mark occasionally, everything in nature is beautiful for no apparent reason. So, I've come full circle. I'll continue taking pretty pictures but with an eye toward the shadows as well as the light."
