"For me, both photography and landscaping are similar in a fundamental way: I am often choosing not to accept things the way they really are, but am instead turning them into what I wish they could be."

It has always been fascinating to me how residential landscapes can be so natural and yet so fake, so contrived, all at once. The dichotomy is mesmerizing.

I'll show people pictures of a yard I shot, maybe even my own yard, and they'll say, "Oh how beautiful, I wish I could see it in person!"

And I'm thinking, "Why would you want to do that? Do you have any idea how long it took me to get it to look like this? You realize that it doesn't just stay this way, right? What's happening in this photo is about as good as it gets, Buddy. No need to come over and spoil the fantasy!"
