Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Lake Hawea

“Do tears not yet spilled wait in small lakes?”
― Pablo Neruda “Joy, sorrow, tears, lamentation, laughter — to all these music gives voice, but in such a way that we are transported from the world of unrest to a world of peace, and see reality in a new way, as if we were sitting by a mountain lake and contemplating hills and woods and clouds in the tranquil and fathomless water.” ― Albert Schweitzer

The streams shall run in gladness,
The lakes shall shine and burn,
And sorrow fail and sadness
At the Mountain-king’s return!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit


Mt. Cook


“What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it’s curved like a road through mountains.”
― Tennessee Williams “You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
― Dr. Seuss“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”
― Sylvia Plath     “The mountains are calling and I must go.”
― John Muir    “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
― John Muir

Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

“Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.”
― Wallace StevensI will love you as the doctor loves his sickest patient and a lake loves its thirstiest swimmer. ― Lemony Snicket I wandered lonely as a cloud…

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

― William Wordsworth

   “We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
― Oscar Wilde “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
― Stephen Hawking “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.”
― Douglas Adams
