My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    Wonderful work, Bryan. And what a beauty she is. There’s really something special about Baltimore clippers.

  • I agree Keld—they look like they are going fast even sitting still.
