I guess I have given my life to photography. Apart from the usual staying alive things photography is the principle serious activity for my waking hours. I started as a part time practitioner in 1969 and went full time in 1992.
Photography is not work and it isn't play but it surely consumes my hours, days, and years just the same. And it is time that I will not get over. Unless the Buddists are right and I'm due for a bit of reincarnation; but as what? I don't want to know.
