I really dislike this word. I’ve been told on a number of occasions by friends, relatives, and family that I’m a talented photographer. I don’t believe it for even one minute. Talent has to do with some innate ability to do something better than average. Believe me, photography is not my talent. I would, however, say that I am well practiced. What you see is the result of 20 years, or so, off and on, of practice, practice, practice, and…

Keeping it simple: When photography and I first met it was sometime around 1979, perhaps 1980 and I’ve never been the same. At that time I was using a Minolta SRT-101, fully manual camera. Photography had moved on from the range-finder, for the most part, as was going into the SLR phase. A friend of mine, Bob Jennings, who introduced me to photography was shooting with the same type of camera. In those days, it was oh so simple: Look…

This weekend is Speed Street Weekend in Charlotte. This weekend at The Lowes Motor Speedway, we have the Coca Cola 600. One of the big National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) events.

This was taken on January 15, 2004. It is the bridge that passes over Lake Worth, in White Settlement, TX … somewhere near Fort Worth. I was on the way to work one day, saw the fog and decided to stop and get some…

Somewhere among the flowers is a sneaky, flower-eating squirrel. Use your keen powers of observation to find him! 🙂 I stood and watched this little beasty eat about 10 of these flowers. He would chew through the stalk, eat the back of the flower, then move on! I didn’t know that squirrels liked flowers so much!

Style: a particular, distinctive, or characteristic mode or form of construction or execution in any art or work As I continue to organize and import images, I am starting to get an overall feeling for my style. Now, that said, I don’t know if my style would be recognizable to anyone else where they to see several groups of images side by side. I don’t think that it would be possible given only a few images; however, given a significant…
