I must admit that I’m absolutely smitten by the natural world, especially the flowers and trees in our landscape.  On the most basic level my ‘job’ as a photographer is to capture images and present them to others to enjoy, reflect on, be moved by and – hopefully -- acquire. 

 

But my mission as a photographer is to see.  Sometimes the most brilliant flower gets my attention. Often, though, it is the less obvious, the one tucked away in the shelter of leaves, or buds not yet open but full of promise for what is to come.   There is, of course, the occasional bird or other critter that crosses my path insisting on a portrait. Some of them make me offers that I just can’t refuse!  

 

  I hope you’ll stop by here often to see and celebrate the natural world with me. 

 

A Marvel of Nature: Night-Blooming Cereus

November 05, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

 

This amazing desert flower always demands attention – even though its remarkable bloom fully opens and lasts for just one night.   It is an adventure to capture and preserve the beauty of these glorious blooms in photographs.

Click on my Saatchi Art gallery to see my series of Cereus photographs.  Seriously!
 


The Art Of The Note

June 04, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

In this fast-paced digital age we can receive a flood of e-mails and texts, many of them dashed off quickly and often made up only of abbreviations--perhaps a few letters (LOL, SYL).  Sometimes the text is just a smiling or crying or hand-clapping symbol.  

But there is nothing quite like the pleasure of receiving a handwritten note. 

 

 

 

                       Introducing the first "Art Of The Note" Cards

Each note card has one of my photographs mounted on the front.  The photographs are printed using archival inks on fine art photographic paper.

When you send one of these notes you not only send your personal message, you are also sending a small gift of art that can be framed and kept in view to enjoy time and again.

 

When you give a gift of art to those you care about, every time they see it they will remember that you cared.    Click Note Cards to see all the images and details about this brand new series of Art of the Note cards.
