Allen says,"Images are much more than a simple record. Photography speaks to the best and most generous part of our human nature--the desire to share what we find beautiful and interesting with others. Photography allows us to express ourselves through an art form."
"We notice a beautiful landscape or a sunset and we want to capture it. Each of us will have a different reason to do so but,essentially, we want to create something. However humdrum our nine-to-five lives may be the creation of an image makes us an artist."
"Photographs can grab our attention and speak directly to our emotions. Photography at it's best, is a powerful language which speaks to us. It allows us to tell our story and show others our framing of the world around us. And for the photographer who trips the shutter, it feels good.
I would be delighted and honored if you chose to hang one of my photos on your wall or use one as a greeting card."
Finally, a magnificent black and white capture of a foggy day.
