Some lessons apply equally well to photography and to life.
As publisher of my fiction, nonfiction, photographs, paintings, design, and creative ideas, I find my focus in seeing, exploring and recording life's details—like the two novels I'm writing, or the scenic gumbo that is my Vanishing Austin photography series, and the prints I call Lightscapes. Or writing for my blog on creativity, art + what goes with it, and my travels around my hometown, Austin, Texas and back in time, at AustinDetails.me. Creative collaboration is a key part of my process. And it all comes together on my art + photo + words blog, Pairings :: Art + What Goes With It, at AustinDetails.me, where my art meets tech.
