Being an architect is like being a photographer - you are constantly zooming in and out, looking at things near and far, trying to find your spot and focus to crisp perfection. You are thinking about the big picture and the minutia, the future and the past; understanding the world, people, culture, and space; being a scientist, an artist, and the conductor of an orchestra; and trying to find new and better ways to communicate your ideas. It's like being a landscape photographer and a macro specialist at the same time. It's about bringing the important things into focus and blurring the rest, and just like bokeh, the results are beautiful. And that is what I want to write about in this space. Not photography, although there might be some photos, but architecture.
