For most of my photographic life, I have been a landscape photographer who worked very hard to create images that minimized human influences and eliminated people from my photographs. Then more recently I turned my creative attention to urban street photography where people play a critical role and [...]
I love flowers. I love to look at them. I love to smell theme. And I love to photograph them. I find them beautiful; I find them sensual… words that may seem strange coming from a big hulking guy like me.

“A Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man” – Self-portrait in Infrared
It has been quite a while since I wrote in this blog. Life and the things we have to do often gets in the way of things we would like to do. So please, consider this the first of an irregular [...]
