Each morning, I thank God for all that he's done in my life. From the once barren ashes of sorrow has grown immense joy. Over the last 18 years, the vehicle for this transformation has been the camera.

I commemorated this with a new piece on my right arm. The stem of a rose, complete with thorns, rises from the lens before opening into an exquisite blossom. This was a bit of a collaboration between my original idea, and the creative talent of artist @brendangrimes. I know not everyone is a fan of ink, but I view it as an outward representation of an inner change.

Thanks so much to all of you for sharing in my work and being part of this journey with me.
