All the photographs in the No Transfer gallery were made from the window of a bus or train.  Starting out of a frustration with working on the street in Boston – a very difficult place for a street photographer – it grew into an absorbing project.  Working from a moving bus or train offered new challenges, how quickly I needed to work, the right seat, dirty and tinted windows.  Almost immediately something different began to happen - I was responding to the first impulse before my mind started to run the process.  This environment offers no second chances or time to consider anything, only perception followed by a response with a camera.  Photographer Henry Wessel said of this quality:  “…(being) outside your mind, your eyes far ahead of your thoughts." 

And I am still learning.
