  1. Take Me Out to the Ball Game …

    20 Jun 2022
    Yesterday, for the first time since Covid changed the world, I got to Nationals Park. I love baseball. I love going to the ballpark and everything about it, except finding a parking space. I enjoy the pace, the overpriced food, the fact that unlike football, it is non violent, save…

    93 years old in this photo Rena Cohen Dweck passed away this week, 2 days shy of her 105th birthday. A life well-lived, one of generosity and spirit. 

  3. Taking a Stroll

    06 Jun 2022
    When people wore hats, home was where they hung them. The front door is the passage to that sanctuary from the chaos of the outside world. The front of a home can reveal a bit about the residents, sort of like bumper stickers on cars. This particular block in my…

    Main Street For full screen display, click on the individual photograph It’s obvious, I love travel. The process of getting there, not so much. Driving usual means tedious hours on interstates negotiating construction or accident slowdowns. Amtrak is unreliable for keeping schedules. Recently my son’s Acela train from New York…

  5. CATCHING THE WAVE

    Hang None … or not. There is a lot of action in surfing, but unlike birding, movement is a bit more predictable. Surfers are not as fast as an osprey diving for a fish or as erratic as a kingfisher hovering over water.  The most dramatic surfing photographs are the…

  6. Flight

    Nanday Parrots The cool thing about photography, whether professional or enthusiast, is that opportunities arise to sharpen skills and learn something new. Much of my work has been static, e.g. portraits, product, food and architectural photography. Nothing is moving or speeding by, so the skills required are for the most…

  7. Which is correct, Roofs or Rooves?

    24 Apr 2022
    Structures have always fascinated me. I discovered I have a subliminal fascination with rooftops. Peaks, gables, cornices, eves and ridges can form interesting graphic subjects. Tight shots, long shots and aerial shots make compelling compositions.  Designs vary with the period in which buildings were designed and constructed and the materials…

  8. PETALS

    Infra-red simulation of tulips  One of my favorite subjects over man years has been floral photography. To make compelling images takes creativity and strong technique, so I thought, in case you were interested, that a bit of guidance may be helpful. Flowers have all the elements we photographers love; color,…

  9. Change of Venue

    28 Mar 2022
    It’s been about seven years since I tired of Winter in Washington, D.C. The daylight is shorter, light is harsher, trees shed their canopy, and, as an architectural shooter, assignments soften. After all, what client wants to photograph a class-A building with no life around it?  For the first couple…

  10. INFRA-RED, BEYOND VISUAL

    15 Mar 2022
    My last post revisiting old photos got me thinking a bit more about the film stock that was available back in the day. One of the more curious was Ektachrome Infra-red film marketed by Kodak (IR film is still available). This was a film that did wonderful things with foliage…
