Retrospective I

As I look back over my 40+ years of taking photographs, I have many different styles.  From studying other photographers, I noticed many have one style or a style that progresses over time.  Maybe my body of work reflects the countless of times I have come back to photography only to find I could not...

Backyard 2018 pt2

Below are the images that first caught my eye in my backyard.  As I mentioned in the previous blog, it was late afternoon after we have came back from the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I'm not sure why I was drawn the these plants but I was. It has taken me several weeks to... Continue Reading →

Composition Lesson – August Lake 1990

“August Lake” was about that quiet early morning hours in northeastern Ohio when fog raises from the warm lake water as the summer nights begin to cool foreshadowing autumn and the end of summer.  I was looking back through my image files and came across the original chrome (aka slide) of “August Lake”.  I first...

Birthday Drive 2018

I decided to get out of Denver and drive the roads I first saw 40 years ago as I was nearing my twenty-first birthday.  I had left college in January of that year because they would not allow me to take courses in my chosen major of Radio & TV.  You see, in order to... Continue Reading →

Montana Road Trip II (part 2)

I woke up the following morning in Sheridan Wyoming.  The previous evening I spent two hours backtracking up to Casper to get on I-25 which was the faster route to Glacier although now it would only save me two hours instead of four off the route I had first headed-out on.  After a quick hotel...

6 Days and 3000 Miles in 12 Photos

  On a mid-June morning in Oceanside CA, I began filming my first full-length documentary. For the next 6 days I shot videos and stills as four women and twelve crew members raced across America.   Hours after the start the racer sees her first sunset.   Bikes and rider loaded in the follow vehicle,...

Glacier 2018

These are a few more images I captured on my July Road Trip. The days were cloudy with rain off-and-on throughout the days.  It made for some great images but you would never know it by just looking through the lens.  This is where composition comes into play.  If the image is not well composed...

Cross Country 2012

In Opportunities Rarely Come Twice, I wrote about seizing opportunities whenever you can.  In this case is was filming / photographing a bicycle team's attempt at breaking a cross country record for the fastest time to ride across America.  Along with producing my first full length film, the opportunity provided for great still photographs.  Below...

Storms Brewing 2018

The other week I went for a bike ride through a local park, Cherry Creek Reservoir.  The clouds were threatening but it was a warm day so a little water would be a relief.  I only had my smartphone and the photos came out rather well. JSH  

My Backyard – 2018

It was the end of a long drive.  We were back from our Memorial Day excursion to the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.  I was sitting on the couch looking out the patio door to the backyard.  The light was soft from all the shade.  For what ever reason I grabbed my camera and went...

Fossil Creek Reservoir – May 2018

I'm preparing for a July adventure and needed a tent.  I found one on CraigsList like the one I had when I was 21.  I contacted the seller to purchase the tent but he was only going to sell it through his garage sale on Saturday.  Unfortunately, I could not be there on Saturday.  I...

Opportunities Rarely Come Twice

In 2009, right as the Great Recession began, I took an hiatus from my IT work to pursue a few personal goals.  The hiatus began with a graduate program in psychology which unfortunately ended after the first semester.  Being dyslexic, I could not keep up with the amount of required reading.  Plus, as many know...

Loveland Pass 2014

Loveland Pass was photographed on two weekends.  The first weekend was in late October when I went for a hike to clear my mind.  I had not been out of Denver for a long while and needed some fresh air.  What better place to get fresh air than the Continental Divide at Loveland Pass. The... Continue Reading →

Maui 2002

If the statistics are correct half of you have been through a divorce.  No, not your parents, but your own marriage.  And then again, perhaps it is because your parents got divorced that you are simply following the pattern.  The point here is that when a marriage is ending you both sense it.  Whether it's...
