I’m going to let you in on a secret… one of the reasons I love taking pictures. Are you listening? I can capture hope. I’ll say it again. One of the reasons I love taking pictures is to capture hope. You see, there is so much I get fed up with, grief stricken by, sick and depressed over. Just watch the news and you know what I mean or look at the headlines for the last month. But then… then there’s this… young love, a budding flower, an unexpected smile. I have to hold on to those things or Iíll be overwhelmed and grow cold. I don’t want to grow cold. Hold on with me. (Taken at Venice Beach where someone ran their car into a crowd of people.)

“Because of the increase in wickedness the love of most will grow cold.” ~Jesus
