Autumn Rose

I just like this photo. We were walking around the neighborhood a couple of nights ago just before sunset, so I grabbed the camera with the 50 /1.8 attached, just in case. Also gave me an excuse to work on learning how to use Photoshop CS5. So here it is -- on my least favorite holiday of them all. A rose for Halloween.

Jack and Wilma: Still Crazy After All These Years...

I was blessed with the opportunity to shoot a wedding this past weekend -- Jack and Wilma. Both 84 years old. That's 168 years between them. Jack told me that he had a crush on Wilma in high school. I guess patience is truly a virtue! I generally avoid wedding photography like the plague, but this one was just too special to pass up...

My photo, "Falling" was selected by the "Earth Touch" blog for their Friday post. Pretty nice!

Savannah After Dark - 2011

A few photos from our annual October pilgrimage to Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is a target rich environment for photography... full of art, history, southern culture.... Shot these with a Sigma 85mm f/1.4 lens on my Nikon D700.

Minor Rant 1.0

Don’t you sometimes just get tired of it? Tired of staring vacuously at a LCD monitor for eight hours. Then getting cut off in traffic by that arrogant bastard in the bright blue Mercedes. Doesn’t it become just a bit dreary? Listening to the talking heads on any of the news channels. Making up the news as they go along. Leaving out small, important pieces of the truth. Surely you find it slightly unnerving that the best candidates the US can find for its highest office are all just a little off center? And their supporters can only sling crap and meaningless generalities at each other while their country crashes and (eventually) burns? Well, me too. Sometimes paying attention can be a burden. And when it all piles up too high to see over, I know it’s time for a hike in the woods and a visit with the wildflowers. They unselfishly do their jobs. They grow. They bloom. They pollinate. They feed the birds, bees, butterflies and other assorted wild things that are also doing their jobs. No ego-based bickering – just natural selection and self-preservation. The way nature intended.  So here. Walk with me.
