Message from Clayton Parsons
I just wish to let every one know that I have no aspirations to be overly original. Nor do I wish to be professional, enter any contests such is hosted by our most renouned Arts and Crafts house in Beckley, WV, nor to make any financial gain from my photography. I do photography purely as a love of the heart. I have read somewhere that some famous photographer once said something to the effect that the lens of the camera is the eye of the heart. I consider my photography to be merely an expression of my heart for the love of the world around me. For me even the smallest of insects and plants are beautiful and special and that is what I wish to convey in my work express that beauty of life to those who view my shots. In addition I,as a 5th. generation West Virginian, wish to express my love for my State for which I was so homesick during my 11 years in the US Navy and the 20 years I lived in New Zealand....."you can take the boy out of the hills, but not the hills out of the boy". We have much unappreciated beauty here and it is my heart's desire to show all of you some of that natural beauty. Finally, should any of you wish to have any of my photos they are free to you as long as you respect my copyright, do not use them for commercial purposes or gain and then send an email stating that they will be used for your personal use only. Finally, I wish to thank all of my fellow pbase members who have given me so much encourarement and support and made my experience on this site so very special. Welcome to my world as seen through the eyes of my heart and thanks for stopping by.
