    cats, dogs, and horses have always been favorites for my pictures, and i think for everyone else also…it is my horse pictures which seem to have gotten the most serious favor however…yet i will keep trying with the cats…

  2. That image is so painterly. The quality of stroke and color define this image more so than the usual importance of line in photography. Well I know for sure I’m a thwarted painter!

  3. Lets not forget David’s children portraits. Many are absolute classics… Divided Soul is full of kids.

    I think they’ve always been present, starting with Tell it like it is….

    “I mostly take pictures at home”

    About thirty years ago, there was an essay in one of the photo magazines by a photographer named Nathan Farb. It was a series of photos of his then pre-school age daughter Esme who was developmentally delayed. In the piece, Nathan made a statement that struck a deep chord within me. Paraphrasing, it went something like this. “It occurred to me that years from now, the only photographs that would have any lasting meaning to me are the photographs that recorded and celebrated my everyday life.”

    “fine art” photographs, and travel photos are OK, but I’m much more interested in snaps taken around the kitchen table, or your cat on the front porch.

    Curiously, many ‘serious’ photographers do not take their personal snap-shooting very seriously.
