  1. Southern Lights

    06 Dec 2021
    Christmas in South Florida is markedly different than back home, the near north. The air has no chill in it and there is little chance for snow unless Mother Nature does an about face on current climate change, so, whadda we got to pump up Christmas spirit?  We got lights,…

  2. Staying Focused

    25 Nov 2021
    As a golfer with their short game or tennis player’s serve, a photographer has to shoot to further hone technical skills and grow creatively, especially if one is shooting for oneself.  I work with several different camera systems, all of which are ergonomically unique. If I haven’t used one for…

    Normally I post recent work on this blog. Every Blue Moon, there was one this morning in case you weren’t looking, I revisit my archives to make room on my hard drive or to review earlier projects. Today I revisited Portland. I hadn’t taken a solo photo trip out to…

  6. Sunrise, Sunset

    16 Nov 2021
    I’m what’s derisively known down here as a Snow Bird. I swoop down to South Florida when the chill hits the air in D.C. and then whoosh back in the Spring as the typical Florida heat and humidity build to the point where I simply can’t take it anymore. That…

  9. Path to Happiness

    25 Oct 2021
    Have you met anyone who didn’t like a merry-go-round? I haven’t.  A truly unique example is the Carousel of Happiness in Nederland Colorado. Its roots are in a carousel built by Danish woodcarver Charles I.D. Looff, who built the first carousel for Coney Island. Looff went on to construct carousels…
