These are stunning pictures. Are you a professional photographer? Where's your trip report? Please more pictures.

Omigosh! I was feeling pretty good about mine... until I saw yours! They are truly awesome. Yes, more please. (But could you wait until AFTER everyone's seen mine? kidding.)

Thanks a lot Robin.... I actually had to do some work tonight, but that was thrown out the window because I could not get out of your website. I went through almost every gallery and will go through them again. You have an amazing aesthetic and sense of joy and whimsy, in addition to your remarkable eye. Wow. I have learned so much just watching you. I shall continue to watch.

I truly believe great photos are 80 percent the photographer and only about 20 percent the camera (so kudos to you!), but I must ask: what kind of camera do you use?

These photos are lovely -- the composition, colors. I especially like the portraits that capture the personality of the subjects. Not many have the ability to see as you do.

Thank you all for such kind comments, they're greatly appreciated!

@Althom - Just viewed your photos and they're fantastic. I believe the ones I've posted so far were shot with my Canon 5DII and either the 17-40 or 70-200 f/4.

@Boston - LOL sorry about your evening! But thank you!

@Dgunbug - During the next several weeks I'll be making the bold transition from weekend warrior to full time freelance photographer. Wish me luck!

Nutella - We'd love to hear more about your trip. Please try to write at least a brief trip report. And good luck with your photography endeavors.

Nutella-your photos are fabulous. If photographic skill converts to $$$$$$, you should do very well in your new endeavor. Good luck.

Thanks again!

Apologies, but I don't think there will be a trip report. I like to let my images (and poetry, if I get inspired and add to my blog) tell my story. Or else y'all can wait for the book and movie. The only question is - since Julia has already played Elizabeth, who will play me???

Just curious - do you ask people permission to photograph them or are you taking the pictures with a telephoto lens? Have you photo edited these pictures or is this how they come out after you take them? They are just stunning! By the way, I'm willing to read poetry!

I ask permission. The best part of the portrait isn't the end result, but the memory of approaching the person, interacting, showing them the photo on the camera's screen and experiencing their reaction! And because of that, I like to think that every portrait I take contains some reflection of me!

Yes, I do some degree of post processing on every image. Same as if you were developing film in the darkroom.

Oh, I now realize that in some instances I don't ask. For example the woman with the yellow scarf sitting in the booth. I think of her as more of an abstract element in the photo. If she had noticed me, my idea for the photo would be ruined, and if she were unhappy about being photographed, I would have apologized and walked away. Also, if it were more of a personal portrait of her, I'd definitely ask permission.
