I would day dream of being a photo journalist. When I was in high school, my favorite class was photography. There was something beautiful about shooting and developing your own photos in a darkroom.

Often searching out the graphical symmetry in chaos, while still maintaining the personality and emotion of the subject. The excitement and anticipation as we waited to see the next piece of unpredictable chaos was electric.
