For me, a good photograph is simply one that shows the viewer something they have never seen before or takes them to a place they may never be able to visit. A valuable photo is also something one can use to recall special times in special places with special friends.
I especially hope you enjoy the Talk Story link. Inspired by Twilight at Kalahuipua’a which was designed to perpetuate the traditional folk art of storytelling, preserving stories for future generations. In a blog like fashion my images are accompanied by musing regarding the work as I experienced the moment. In fact, this site is based on the belief that a photograph may be worth a thousand words but a thousand words can set the stage, provide personal insights, or simply “talk story.”
