Why would I mind your prying eye
when I am the one giving the funny looks? 
Why would I dwell on your disapproval
when I am the culprit and the accuser?

This is one of my proudest shots (and there's a bunch of similar compositions that I may post later). I think it's obvious to say that it's not just a picture, that there's more of a meaning behind it. But the beautiful thing about photography is that going into it I wasn't thinking "I'm gonna take this shot to represent _____" it just winds up being natural. Like any other form of art, whether it be writing or drawing or performing or anything else, photography is a release. It can't be put into words, but it comes from the heart. There is something in my mind that I cannot explain, and this photo is the representation of it.

I stand on ledges, I dangle my feet over deathtraps, I walk over sketchy floors, I climb over caving roofs, I wander off on my own. I am often called crazy for it. Am I? Maybe. But, however selfish and pathetic it may be, I do it with the feeling that I have nothing to lose. I need something to make me feel alive, something to draw the line between being here and being gone; I only feel alive at extremes. I don't just do it for fun or for thrill. It's more. Call me crazy, but I flirt with disaster to keep from going crazy. Sometimes you need to dance around death to know what it means to be alive.

There is nothing wrong with judging. To judge is to perceive, conceptualize, and opine; it is innate and only a liar never judges. To judge outwardly, though, is to make assertions and expose oneself to rebuke. Do not confuse the two, for judging by its nature is innocent, but to judge outwardly is where such an action receives such a negative connotation; to judge is not to prejudice. Every man is a judge. He who tells another not to judge demands, in fear of prejudice, the revocation of an essential element of his being. The fear of prejudice must never precede a faculty given by nature.
