This could be the most important photograph made during this country’s current generation. It will become an iconic reminder of the 2010-2020s.
IT’S A LOVELY MORNING – BUT NOT EVERYWHERE
I often take my good fortune for granted.

Thank you to all my friends. I’m lucky to have each and every one of you.

ACCEPTANCE, NOT EXPECTATIONS
Not everyone seeks perfection. In contrast, I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist. It stems from my belief that things can always be better.

I made this image of Mt. Rushmore from a low-flying helicopter in the ’80s. I probably wouldn’t be allowed to do it today. Not sure I’d want to.
The image below is one I made last month.
Think deeper. Be safe.
At some stage in your career, hopefully early on, you decide it’s important to stay humble, no matter what level of success you achieve.
The passion you feel along the way can have a way of making everything you experience a bit larger than life, obscuring the overall relevant importance of what you are doing.
Sure, some ego is important for the artist to survive, as is drive, tenacity and grit, which are all necessary to succeed, but those won’t determine what you leave behind that actually matters. Continue reading “”
NOT A GOOD SIGN
From Uncrate: “In airplanes, the black box records and stores flight data to provide information in the event of a crash. With climate change putting our planet in a downward spiral, earth is getting one of its own. The 33-foot-long steel vault is being constructed on the coast of Tasmania and is designed to record and collect measurements and interactions as our planet continues to decline. Continue reading “”
