Bruce Weber + Rob Pattinson = ______________

I invite you to fill in the blank.

Bruce Weber is one of my favorite photographers and Rob Pattinson is not one of my favorite actors but he definitely plays one of my favorite vampires.

I really love stories about fantasy and the supernatural. When I was a kid I loved stories based in fantasy...talking animals, faraway places, magical lands...yes, please! It doesn't surprise me in the least that I would love The Twilight Saga as an adult.

Don't stop reading, please! I love the idea that two people who are so different can love each other. I love the drama and the tension of the story and yes, I love the vampires, shape-shifters, shields, fantasy...all of that.

The characters exist only on the page but in my imagination they come alive - like with all great stories. Photography is a lot like fantasy - Photographers are storytellers. People in photographs are characters just as "people" in books of fiction and when you have a genius like Bruce Weber to work with, those people can be whoever they want to be...or whoever he wants them to be.
