The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

Taken from behind the Leland Stanford Mausoleum, I tried to create a ghostly effect to match the feeling of the place. This is one of those images that has more meaning to me than the viewer, who are not aware of the time, place, or purpose of the photo. I've often seen photographers excited about their work but not receive the same enthusiasm by others due to the personal attachment to the piece. Yes, we should create images for ourselves but be aware of how the work may or may not convey a response from others.
