I'm going to try something new.

What you are about to read is the intoduction of my book that I am working on publishing. It is written by a dear friend of mine Sarah.  Thank you Sarah, your talent to find words to express things I can only photograph is absolutely astonishing.

Dear Reader,

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to view the world through the eyes of someone else? What it’s like to experience everyday life in a perception that is not your own? Now that you have this book in your hands, you will experience that feeling, for Camera Dan will take you on a journey into the world of his soul through the images he has captured and compiled into this book.

When I met Dan ten years ago, I knew there was even more to him than what met my eye. I could feel it. His presence was mysteriously astounding and intriguing. Now, after all these years, I am able to see what lies inside him through his photographs. The images he has captured throughout his years as a professional photographer range from beautifully simple, everyday reflections to alluring landscapes that stay with you long after you have viewed them.

This book is a glimpse into the marvelous spirit of Camera Dan. Whether he is in his own backyard or on a tour through the vast shorelines of Iceland, there is a poetic aura surrounding him and his camera. Dan’s photographs encompass this aura and it is seen throughout this book. His passion and talent for photography is beyond inspirational and is felt by everyone that encounters it.

How this book came into your hands, I will never know. Yet, what I do know is that the images in this book will enter your heart and mind, and stay with you forever.
