Lisbon B&W

Beginning with my trip to Montery, CA in early spring this year, I'm rediscovering B&W.  It's a fascinating process, both chemically or digitally, plus being forced to visualize the basics of an image void of reality's color. It's very refreshing.                              ... Continue Reading →

Rocks & Waves

I have another grouping of images that I captured while in Monterey CA, last Spring. 2019.  While there I visited all the galleries in the small town of Carmel by the Sea with a special visit to the Weston Gallery.  I finally saw the real prints of Adams, the Westons, Karsh, Penn and others.  I...

Lisbon

I recently had the fortune to travel to Lisbon, Portugal.  It’s the capital of the country and like most capitals, very clean and bustling with people.  Walking was the best mode of transportation to see the wonderful streets and architecture.  I captured several interesting images using various photography techniques with both a smartphone and digital...

Camp Log Lodge

I attended this camp in the early 1970s as a camper.  Recently I had the pleasure of sharing the camp experience with my son.  He/we had a blast! Normally at home I wake up early (4:00AM) each day and while at camp it was no different.  I captured these images while the camp was still... Continue Reading →

Clouds 2001

In 2001 I had a daily commute of 50 minutes to go 50 miles.  Not bad when you compare it to others who commute 50 minutes to go half that distance.   On my way home during the winters I saw some great sunsets and clouds that were lit-up by the setting sun.  I took these... Continue Reading →

Ferns 2018

Remember my post "Montana Road Trip II (part 3)"?  I had driven back to Glacier National Park in hopes of catching some autumn color but I was met with a the most dreary day.  It had me very depressed that I would not find anything worth photographing.  Boy, was I wrong. The super gray lighting... Continue Reading →

Snow Tire

After one of Denver's weekend snows, I went for a walk.  The was fresh enough and the day young enough that only a couple of people left their tracks in the snow.  Someone on one of those mountain bikes with the mega fat tire had broken the trail.  The snow was of the perfect consistency...

A Rare Look at the Original Image

I have great respect for painters who take a blank canvas and create wonderful images.  Sometimes I feel photographs and photographers are discounted because "all they do is click the shutter."  So let me confirm that is not how I develop and create my photographs. Many of my photographs only start out with a click. ... Continue Reading →

Grand Canyon, Phantom Ranch

My legs, in particular my knees were at their end and turning my hike down the South Kaibab trail into an endurance test.  I had devoured my lunch.  As I advanced forward 50 to 100 yards at a time before needing a rest, I was still a good hour from the Colorado River. I had... Continue Reading →

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...

Calabasas 1988

A year before I left LA in 1988, I had the opportunity to photograph some landscapes in Calabasas, CA west of the city.  It was an early summer morning and the fog was lingering.  The fog gave a great quality of light and one I had not photographed before.  I loved it. Interestingly, a year... Continue Reading →

Now What? Confinement.

Have you ever had a dream?  A dream of achieving a goal in your personal life or career, and then found that you accomplished it.  Or perhaps you realized the dream was more about the journey and not the destination, and now the journey is over.  But for what ever the reason, you come to...

Montana Road Trip II (part 4 and final)

It was 12:20 PM, gotta love metadata, when I continued my drive south from East Glacier.  According to my navigation system, gotta love GPS, I would arrive in Great Falls at 3 PM or at 3 AM if I drove straight through to Denver.  In perceiving little possibilities of interesting landscapes on this gloomy day...

Montana Road Trip II (part 3)

I was exhausted when I arrived in Whitefish, Montana around 3 PM.  I’m not sure why though.  The trip took 24 hours and I had a nights rest so why was I so tired.  I found a hotel but they would not give me the Internet’s lower posted room rate. So I had to register... Continue Reading →
