    Does your photography ever inspire your poetry?

    As a matter of fact it does.  Most of the time.  I have had something rattling around in my head, though that I have had to find the "perfect" situation to fit the poetry.
    I actually use my photos as the backdrop for my poetry instead of setting it up side by side.  You can see more of my work on facebook at parker's pasttimes.

    Indeed it does. The moments of positive or negative experience are suspended in the photograph one takes. Along with the real- time experience are the emotional,spiritual, physical impressions one may not be able to express at the moment. Photographs permit  repeat encounters of the experience and brings about previous impressions, now easier to express, filtered into finer grains by the passage of time.

    No. It's more like my poetry inspires my photography.

    Yes, it's true a picture is worth a thousand words!

    Definitely! I used to always want to write. Now that I've become a photographer, I have expanded my writing skills to explain some of my photography.
