Inspiration

I’ve tried to lend a little creative perspective and fodder for imaginative interpretation to my photographs through the words of some outstanding artists. If you’re lucky music can be a soundtrack to your life. It has been for me. And I have tried to make the music work for my photos as well….

Here is a list of songs that have been featured with my individual photographs. The linked song titles in this list point to the picture posts that I have put up, utilizing lyrics from these songs as post titles. As I have been doing from the beginning– the videos for these songs are linked in each post as well. Occasionally, I have drawn from non-musical inspiration and have included these links in the list. I hope that this will create a new dimension for visitors to my site and how the pictures that I share are experienced.

Thank you for visiting!
