Queen Pirouette watched her two youngest children playing in the courtyard. Twins, a boy and a girl, they both wielded imaginary swords made of little branches. Although they were a bit small for their age (eight years) they burst with energy. Nothing could have pleased Her Majesty more than the sight of her babies running, jumping, laughing and shouting. If one were to gauge her perception as a mother, they’d find that the twins encompassed everything near perfection in this life.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar. View more posts
