October 10, 2021. It is a Sunday and why not begin this blog with an act of creation. The Genesis of Circle 7 Arts began decades ago when I started to freelance my skills as a photojournalist and documentary photographer. I had just been laid off from a major newspaper during the big California recession of 1992. My tenure of being a staff photographer was canceled due to a changing world. This was all happening as the internet was reaving up and in the decades to come, many photojournalists like myself would lose their livelihoods. The one thing that I never lost was the sense of wonder about a place where space and time can be captured in still image. The word photography means "Painting with Light", a miraculous marriage of science and art. Chasing Light is akin to Spiritual Vision Quest.
