I was an avid birdwatcher in his youth and could whistle many songbird sounds to their pleasure. That’s where it started. Any birder will tell you about the excitement that accompanies the search, the looking, the spotting, the documenting, and the sharing. Sparrows, warblers ... then a world of people. My photography has always been made from conversation distance. I am ready with “Marhaba,” “Hola,” “Hello,” and later with "Shukran" "Gracias," “Thanks” as well. Works.
