Sam hope all is fine with you. Let me know...

It is an amazing journey for me to be sharing the world through your vision. I think I understand photography more. I know more of its power. I even feel I understand my own feelings about the world in a more profound way by seeing what you do. Thank you, my friend for letting me in on this journey.

Bonjour SAM.
Thanks for your constant support.Waiting your appreciation often,always kind sure,but it is a good time when I go see the Zoe story and other ,a masterpiece to demonstrate your talent and your love of the life.Your knowledge and no compromise in technical, trying always to discover a new tool or an old variation is a great value.
Keep this line and protect yours ,in the mountains the spirit perhaps is very deep but I know in NY also.
Your Friend.
Bernard and Christine and JOJO

Dear SammyX,

You are a hell of a photography and camera (digital & film enthusiast).
Not many around like you. I have enjoyed your advice on cameras and on
images as well. You are also an awesome photographer and a good friend.
Love your writings as much as I enjoy your photographs. Expect to keep
on seeing me back to check out on your latest equipment, latest images,
and on your latest stalking the night accounts. Kaden K.

Just remember to let your passion drive you. You'll go far, I have no doubt about it.

thanks for a view of your world as a thai american. it was very interesting as a chinese american who have traveled extensively in Thailand and understand the Thai temperament. i myself growing up in a major american inner city. I got hitched in China. What a cultural clash! Thanks!
Ronald P. 16-Dec-2005 07:32
Sam, it was great meeting you in person having known you from this site and the forums! Despite your skills, you are very humble and I was really impressed by your knowledge. I really love your site, it is a thinking man's site, you really learn so much about photography and life here, not to mention your fabulous humor! The concepts you've introduced here I have seen imitated by others on various other sites, and forums. I think you are a great and important artist, and hope we get the chance to shoot together again. Very Best Regards,
Guest 23-Aug-2005 17:56

Masterful images of and thoughts concerning the addiction that I also dearly love ... and hate.

For me it's life, it's very much sex, and it's very likely gonna ultimately mean death.

I go to the gym and do my aerobic work on the eliptical trainer like a madman, believing this will ward away the evil spirits of cellular destruction.

What is helping me to move in the direction of putting the habit down is that more and more people are recoiling from me - the smoker.

But then there are still those folks, some "out", some closeted, for whom tobacco is part of erotic rituals.
These men are my buddies in hot, but ultimately damn stupid behavior.

I've never had a problem incorporating "risk-reduction" - "safe-sex" behaviors into my life as a gay man.

Maybe smoking is my way of shaking my fist at the sky that will never yield an answer.

Who knows?

Time for some coffee and a Players Navy Cut.
Real addicts move past filtered smokes ya know ... I'm the guy you'll see tearing the filter off a smoke after I bum one from someone.

Here's a photo-op: Get a camera ready sometime to capture the look of total shock + disbelief that the person witnessing the "ripping of the filter" pretty much always displays as they watch a real addict go after what he craves.

But keep shooting: soon the person's face will soften as their denial kicks in and they soothe themsleves with the thought "Man has he got a problem ... glad I'm not hooked on these things like that guy is."

Keep staring it in the face man ... stay open to the potential for recovery ... well, at least that's what I'm tryin' to do.

Thanks for listening.
