Where Inspiration Lives

The photographs were all taken in and around the Fredericksburg area. This is my home and these surroundings inspire luminous creativity.

This is where inspiration lives – right here in this place. These moments will never be just like this again. This is why I make pictures.

It is through place that we put out roots, wherever birth, chance, fate or our traveling selves set us down; but where those roots reach toward is the deep and running vein, eternal and consistent and everywhere purely itself, that feed and is fed by the human understanding
