This blog is part of a project borne during my travels as a professional photojournalist. For years, I have worked with bulky digital cameras, always mindful of the technical maneuvers from setting the shutter speed and aperture to editing and toning on a computer screen. In the last few years I have discovered that my iPhone has allowed me to capture scenes without feeling that I am once again on the job. To “point and shoot” has been a liberating experience. It has allowed me to rediscover the excitement of seeing imperfections and happy accidents rendered through the lens of my handheld device. I am able to create imagery, edit, and transmit all the images straight to this blog, creating a modern and efficient workflow for the most inefficient of pursuits - self expression.

Tripoli, Libya | July 22, 2012 A Libyan man rides on his Segway during a public Iftar celebration in Martyr’s Square. The fall of Gaddafi opened up many markets in Libya and allowed everyday citizens to use otherwise prohibited goods. The city is packed with various cars and motorcycles that were forbidden or curtailed under the rules of the old regime. #iLibya #photography #photojournalism #documentary #hipstamatic #magnumfoundation #emergencyfund #libya #tripoli #ramadan #segway #iftar (Taken with Instagram)

    My newly modified anti-Segway stance: if it was banned under a dictatorship, I won’t get all grouchy about it.
