If I had to describe my modus operandi as a photographer, I would say serendipity, intuition and epiphany are the key alchemical elements in creating a golden image. Contrary to the philosophy one should carry along a camera at all times, I have sporadic bouts of inspiration. These episodes happen most notably while traveling, exploring new vistas. It's as if the camera acts as a compass, or better still, a divining rod which ferrets out the latent image waiting to be exposed--a found vision, as it were.
