A wise man once said that all human activity is a form of play. #Photoshoot

A wise man once said that all human activity is a form of play. And the highest form of play is the search for Truth, Beauty and Love. What more is needed? Should there be a ‘meaning’ as well, that will be a bonus?

If we waste time looking for life’s meaning, we may have no time to live — or to play.

– Arthur C. Clarke

Yesterday, I gathered a group of eclectic individuals for an afternoon of play in the studio.  As you know by now, I am pretty preoccupied with THE PORTRAIT.  I love impromptu photoshoots as they feed my need to study the human face.  And, heck, photoshoots are so damn fun!

Enjoy these inspiring moments!
