I have lived my entire life, save two North African years, in California. I have been very lucky - it is wonderful in so many ways, beautiful, comfortable and, IMHO, at the cutting edge of human history during my residence. Great photographers (think Atget, C-B, Adams, Winogrand) draw energy from the world they inhabit. Yet, considering that I spend the bulk of my time here, I have been inspired to take relatively few photos. One more great story missed, I'm afraid.
