A Trip to San Francisco


      I recently returned from a trip to San Francisco with close to 2000 images to edit and get down to about 40 so that I could create a manageable representative gallery.  One reason for the 2000 images is due to how I sometimes shoot, which is in brackets, usually in 1 stop […]

A Graveyard and a Cornfield


I was visiting family in August in Central Illinois – Corn Country.  I moved from Chicago – 180 miles north of where I grew up – to New York City almost 16 years ago, and there was a time when I rarely went back to the Midwest.  Now I try to get there at least […]

The Cloisters

Busts on an alter at The Cloisters in upper Manhattan.

2 Images of Elizabeth Street Garden

Diptych, Elizabeth Street Garden, Little Italy, New York

[…]

New Portfolio, “In the Hills Above Joba Arriba”

From my recent trip to Cabarete,  Dominican Republic I had the great joy of taking a hike up in the high forested hills above the village, or campos, of Joba Arriba with a woman I had met on the trip and became fast friends with.  With Marlene as my very accommodating guide and interpreter we […]

Picture of Motel Window Curtain

I shot this from inside a motel room in Florida.  I like the abstract quality of the image.  I love the quality of the light and how the sunlight filters through the polyester fabric to create the soft hues that go from blue, blue-green, and into a light gold.
