Today I am appreciating friends of mine made during the Death Valley Workshop with Bruce Barnbaum, Jack Dykinga and Jay Dusard last October.  We are collaborating on a print share among our small group of friends and I am seeing some of their work from the workshop for the first time this week.  I am inspired by their images.  We all traveled the same roads, visited the same sights, and yet all came back with very different images.  Artist bring themselves to their image making, and these photographers are artists.  As David DuChemin recently commented on Twitter, “Vision comes from shooting from the heart, from making images more about how you feel than what you see.”
