I love taking a camera to the museum, any museum whether it is the Met in NY or the Pennsylvania Railroad Museum in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Not all museums and exhibits allow photos to be taken but there are many where photography is permitted. The incredible art work, sculptures, artifacts and special exhibits at each museum fuels only a small portion of my interest in taking a camera along. My favorite subject matter is observing the visitors, that simple act of watching how people interact with each exhibit makes for some of my favorite subject matter.
In using the shutter priority mode on my camera I can be much more in tune with the element of time where I can convey a moment of deep contemplation or a feeling of motion and flow in an otherwise stationary surrounding, giving my images a true feeling of life.

Constant motion in a place where time stands still.
I do a quite a bit of wildlife and street photography where I rely on the correct amount of time to record the image. In photography the success of a particular image depends so much on the element of time. As they say timing is every thing and in photography it usually is.
