Head West!

March 13th, 2021

If you don’t already know, Margret and I have moved to Taos, New Mexico. We bought a house there in April, 2020 and start moving our cars and household contents soon after. I drove a 16′ truck on 2 different occasions. Each time the truck was loaded to the gills! The moving was complete sometime in May, 2020.

Hall House Fine Art Gallery

May 17th, 2017

My photography has been on display in the Hall House Fine Art Gallery in Dahlonega, GA since mid-March.  The gallery is about 20 miles / 30 minutes from my house in Cleveland.  I started out with 6′ of a wall on which I hung some canvas.  My matted prints were in browse boxes that sat on a table.  Recently I noticed they added me to their Facebook page.  Have a look and when you do, like the page too.
I mainly have canvas, matted prints, and note cards on display.  There are a couple of prints on aluminum as well as 2 triptychs.

There are 16 artists in the gallery.  I’ve met some.  Their work is wonderful as are the artists.  There are a few jewelry displays, pottery, paintings, relief art, and pencil drawings.  Jim’s colored pencil drawings look like photographs.  Check them out and see if you agree.

Spring has Sprung – Can you smell it?

March 27th, 2014

A whiff of spring

Can you smell spring in the air?

There was some heavy fog one morning so I decided to bring my camera, my assistant, and go for a walk.  We stopped at a pond where I had been before to capture some photos.  Cooper was content to just sniff around to check out some things.  As I noticed him doing that, I saw there were some wild flowers scattered about.  Stooping down allowed me to get in close for some photos with the morning dew on the flowers.  As I captured some images, Cooper happened to walk into the flowers I was photographing.  I captured some and I think this is the best of the bunch.  I think you’ll like as much as I.

2013 WaterFire

Waterfire Providence

Waterfire Providence

After viewing the pumpkins at the zoo, we headed over the see the Waterfire.  The evening was about over as vendors were packing their wares, but the fires remained lit.  As is was October and breast cancer awareness month, the capitol had pink lights.  A gallery of my photos is here.

2013 Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

October 22nd, 2013

Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular

Your eyes are like limpid pools …

A week ago on Saturday was spent visiting with cousins Chris and Joe and their families in Massachusetts.  Bridget was also there.  After dinner we went to Rhode Island to the “Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular 2013: Pumpkinville USA” at the Roger Williams Park Zoo.  There was a long line just to get tickets, but someone managed to find a shorter line so the wait was quite a bit less.  There was another wait, after we got tickets, to get in to view the pumpkins.  It was quite worth it, though.  I managed to capture some images and put them in a gallery.  Night photos are a challenge and I hope you enjoy mine.  View the gallery here.

There were pumpkins carved like jack-o-lanterns, but there were also works of art.  It was amazing to see pumpkins carved with spiders, Pee-wee Herman, a wolf, a minion, and a host of others.  I’m not sure how the artists were able to create them, but they were incredible to see.

Amelia Island Sunrise

Amelia Island Sunrise Memorial Day 2013

The sunrise greets and welcomes you to the day.

Getting up in time for sunrise is really worth the effort, usually.  In this case I think I manages to capture some excellent images.  Have a look and see for your self.

Hapeville Christmas Tree Lighting

December 4th, 2012

Cooper on Santa Watch

A couple of weeks ago was the annual tree lighting in the park in Hapeville.  I thought Cooper might enjoy meeting some new people, so with camera and Cooper in tow, we walked to the park.  We no sooner entered the park when a bunch of kids flocked to see Cooper.  No surprise, right?  Throughout the night I continued to capture images.  After most of the crowd left was the best time to use my camera.  At one point I thought I could leave Cooper close to the tree, step back, and capture him and the tree.  As soon as I dropped his leash he started walking away.  I wound up having him sit, hold his leash, and capture him.  There are a few photos in the gallery.  You may view them here.

By now, my original post for NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals) is at least a page or 2 away from the top.  I thought it was time to bring it back to the top.  Or at least it’ll be the first post until I post more of my photos!  😉

Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island Shrimp Festival – 2012

May 23rd, 2012

Fernandina Beach Shrimp Festival 2012

The first weekend of May is when the Shrimp Festival was held in Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, FL.  Courtney and Josh flew to Atlanta Thursday night.  We drove down on Friday and came back on Monday.  They flew back from Jacksonville very early Monday morning.

The main street in historic downtown was closed to vehicles to allow vendors to set up their tents to display their wares.  Food and shopping were all around.  It was quite hot walking around on the asphalt street, which made us very thirsty.  Fortunately water holes were readily available.

With my camera and tripod I captured a few images.  The best I put into a gallery, which is here.
