Dear Martha;

I'm slowly learning that this kind of photography assumes an intimate relationship between nature and camera, organic and mechanical,
and that the forest requires the same risks and commitment non-human primates ask of anthropologists living amongst them. Not that it
will attack! But it will close the doorway to itself. Thus, I walked these trails for six years before taking a picture. Nor did I own a camera.
