People like images for various reasons. It's great when a casual viewer is affected by any image for any reason. For a photographer, there is no choice - most images have some sort of emotion or memory attached. The majority of my favorite images have a story. Those images and stories range from oceanside sunsets to oil spills, copper mines, mountain lions, and a row of 45 coyotes hung on a fenceline by a Northern California bounty hunter. For years, I worked with difficult subjects like nesting birds where I did not want to impact the animals but wanted to capture images for use in school programs, articles, and periodical sales. I will eventually post the story of the nesting grebe (on the left) shot from a canoe in Clear Lake's Anderson Marsh. What a day. What an experience. What a bird.
