From a Box Brownie, to the latest digital gear, it is all just tools, or a means of stating who we are, at various points in time. The sophistication of our images has more to do with our personal growth, than the equipment that we acquire along the way.

Full Moon Insomnia.....
Ever have a night when your head just will not lie down, or some other part of your body is twitching and agitated? Well this image is for you. There was a full moon hanging above planet earth last night, and after the hockey games, I knew sleep would not come easy, so I decided to let my mind do a bit of rambling. The thought came into my head of, how would you photograph or illustrate "insomnia". After browsing through some images, I decided to give it a go. The full moon is one I had photographed a while ago. The graphic image in the background is part of the Detroit skyline, and the Sousaphone player was a shot taken a while back when a Windsor Classical Music group assembled in a nearby park for a free concert. The image took a few hours of work on the computer using Photoshop and Corel softwares, and it gives me the feeling of 4 am., and alone, to deal with the mind or body.....or both.
P.S. This image is especially for my friend Frank, who often sends me e-mails into the wee hours of the morning...LOL!
