For Who I Am With You

As a child I dreamed of visiting England, a world of thatched roofs, tea with cream, and Peter Pan. Many years later, its morphed into a universe of aperture, shutter speed, and, well, tea with cream. Yesterday I had the honor of hosting a photography workshop in London and I am incredibly thankful to do what I love. For those of who have encouraged this endeavor, thank you. I'm a better person because of your support.
