'If I were just curious, it would be very hard to say to someone, "I want to come to your house and have you talk to me and tell me the story of your life." I mean people are going to say, "You're crazy." Plus they're going to keep mighty guarded. But the camera is a kind of license. A lot of people, they want to be paid that much attention and that's a reasonable kind of attention to be paid...' Diane Arbus

hello and happy new year and all that


i don't make new year's resolutions, but i do decide on a few things that i would like to achieve each year, so here goes for this year...

1) take at least one portrait every week

2) do a lot more blogging

and there is a third but it is not something that i could possibly share on here

so in a bid so start the year well here is my first weekly portrait... i wonder what #2 will look like?...
