Beautiful Quote from a new friend

recently received this quote from a new friend and backer of my Kickstarter project, it completely embodies my aim with these Finding Trust pictures, from Henry Beston, enjoy………..

“We need another and a wise and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.” Henry Beston

Dear Lord of the Perfect Edit, Help Me!

I’m not quite sure how i’m supposed to edit these 300 photos in front of me from Wolf Haven down to 20. I love every one of these images I shot this past year and I edited this list down from like 5 million, so please God, grant me the power to make an amazing edit and know which images to delete that are only lovely and perfect to me and not to the rest of the world!!!!!! The Getty Images Grant For Good Program is waiting for them, and i’m terribly off schedule…..
