– YOU DON’T TAKE A PHOTOGRAPH, YOU MAKE IT –

Some say it’s Art, some say it’s “magic” – I say it’s using your vision and the tools at hand, in my case, being my trusty Nikon, to Make the Image.

It’s the Making that is the magic of photography.

– ICELAND –

The folklore of Iceland…

When a human being dies, the soul leaves the earth and goes to one or the other of two distinct regions. Some souls go up into heaven and become Uvdlormuit, the People of Day. Their country lies over toward the dawn. Others again go down under the sea, where there is a narrow belt of land with water on either side. These are called Qimiujarmuit, the People of the Narrow Land. But in either place they are happy and at ease, and there is always plenty to eat.

Those who pass to the Land of Day are people who have been drowned, or murdered. It is said that the Land of Day is the land of glad and happy souls. It is a great country, with many caribou, and the people there live only for pleasure. They play ball most of the time, playing at football with the skull of a walrus, and laughing and singing as they play. It is this game of souls playing at ball that we can see in the sky as the Northern Lights
