The photo collections and poetry offered on these pages represents a view of the world as seen solely through one photographer’s mind, eyes and camera lens. One of the magical qualities of photography is the absolute truth that each photographer interprets a scene according to his/her own unique inner vision and the output of that creative effort becomes a defined image of inner sight; one might say, painting the inside canvas of human experience. It’s an amazing process to be sure. These are indeed frozen moments in time as reflected through one’s eyes by the images created. In browsing through the various galleries and pages of this collection, it is hoped that the viewer will interpret the images presented in his/her own special way and that the experience will add to a greater appreciation of the depth, richness and texture of the world in which we live. -Thomas Bilheimer
