A photograph is almost always yesterday's news, "History."

Almost always, but not really. … Photographs can also twist our minds a little.

As captured moments of history, photographs can be islands in our lives, a physical island capturing the fleeting moment in a bubble of crystalline time. While the real moment continues its way moving deeper into the past of our lives, drifting further from our conscious mind. Even now, we can watch the captured moment recede into the darkness of our lost memories. ... The island of the photograph, like a time machine, can transport us to that moment, forever.

Not only can the photograph transport us back to that moment, that photograph can transport anyone who views the image to that very moment, no matter how far into the future they are viewing the image. The children of your children's children can see, and experience, the moment you have been captured in.

I have been a working photographer for a long time. ... With various side trips into Live Theater, Lighting, New Media Journalism, Teaching, and Computers. … Those tools help me in my work. … I like to help find the beauty in all people, places, things. And, I like to post those visions into the future.

Your photographer friend,
Jack
