    Your last quote inspires me to comment, Naomi. I’m reading a biography of Stephen Hawkings. Because Einstein was Stephen’s hero, there are some interesting facts that reveal marvelous insights about Dr. Einstein. For example, he knew that any scientist who does not have an artist’s eye simply misses key data. In looking at Dave’s photography, I have to wonder if he is in love with science as well.

      Ah, insightful as ever, Amy! Stephen Hawking seems like a phenomenal man. His biography must be brilliant. As for Dave, I can certainly confirm his passion for technology. A mechanical engineer by training and inclination, technical skill is right at the top of his photographic checklist. I believe he manages to merge it with art 🙂
