Pic Tales

Inspired by a quote from Anais Nin, I want to share not the obvious but what we usually are unable to see. The best way for me to achieve this, and to communicate my thoughts and feelings about my images, is through stories: Pic Tales, Haiku, and Photo Essays.

Pic Tales are stories and poems guiding the viewer towards one of many possible realities relating to the objects or people observed.
