Smile by Merrill Weber 
I've been enjoying painting everyday objects. My camera is something that I always have with me. Ever since the 10th grade when Ken Michaels gifted me a very used 35mm [film] camera that his parents had found in their rental property, I've been taking pictures like there's no tomorrow. 

As Aaron Siskind said, "Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.  What you have caught on film is captured forever ... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."
