I spent about half an hour one evening watching the swan boats at Fair Park. I guess I was trying to figure out the appeal of getting in a boat shaped like a giant bird and peddling around a pond for a while. I never got the appeal but the setting sun afforded me some decent opportunities to snap a few pics of these giant jackasses of the water.

I’ve drawn inspiration and encouragement in my life from a multitude of people. People to whom I am forever indebted, but a few years ago, though sheer happenstance really, I came across the work of two photographers that I suspect have done more than any to open my eyes to what photography is and could be.
