Photographs have fascinated me since I was a boy. I can gaze at them for a long time. 

I try to actually feel the time and place in the picture before me, to sense what the people in the picture are sensing. It's a meditation I guess. Everything else disappears for a while.

Here's an example. It's a picture of the French photographer, Eugene Atget. I love the beautifully quiet photographs this man made and figure he must have been a quiet man himself. This portrait of him certainly suggests that and by looking at it I gets me some of his quiet.
