Preferring crowded environments where I can disappear and photograph as if invisible, I usually shoot at carnivals, county fairs, zoos, circuses and, of course, on busy, bustling city streets. In those oft hectic and fluid environments I try to find the pause, the moment, a quiet that I can capture and freeze  before it is gone.
