In early 2015, when I decided to put together some of my images from my walks and encounters in San Francisco into a photography book, I had no idea that it would evolve into what is now my “42 Encounters” project. My plan is to create 42 books over the next 21 years; one image, one story, one book at a time.  All the profits from the sales of the books will be invested in the creation of a forum to teach the young and young at heart how to see the beauty of the world through the lens of the camera or cell phone.  I have great hope that you will become part of this vision as well.  Buy the books, create your own collection and share this idea with your loved ones.

Your Friend,
