High on Photography…


Some Days Even Beauty Hangs Her Head

I’m not a morose person by any means but somehow this image seems to capture the mood of the day. Nothing to do but lift our eyes and look forward towards a better tomorrow.



Been exploring more abstract images – this is the tree line in the backyard with abstracted neighbor porch lights.

Folded over

2014-10-25 06.43.14

Recently I was left spending many hours waiting for a flight… the result was time to play with my camera phone. This image resulted from an attempt to bend a pano shot. It didn’t really bend so much as folded over itself. It was a complete accident, couldn’t do it again if I tried. It’s unusual – hope you like it too.

Need color

Today requires some vivid color and lots of energy.

Reptilia Metallicus

Just a Colorado porch lizard guarding his domain 8^)

Inside or outside?

2014-10-25 09.19.54

In this particular morning light I was struck by the role of this glass front – visually it appears to fail at keeping the outside out or the inside in… an interesting notion to ponder with morning coffee at the airport.

Mum’s the Word

We’re in the second year at our house and my wife Kitty’s plantings are really starting to come alive. My old gray haired mother who was always full of country wisdom told me long ago that when you plant something, the first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, and the third year it leaps! Of course she was right because mothers are always right. The sexy little lizard seems to be agreeing 8^)

The Impatient Patient

A week after knee surgery and Stanley the Bichon is recovering nicely although he still looks like he’s been vandalized by hooligans with hair trimmers. Read the rest of this page »

Redesigned dog

100 year anniversary Greyhound Bus

This is the newest version of the Greyhound logo – looks almost liquid to me. Those brand new Greyhound buses are beautiful inside. They have more amenities than most domestic airlines…

Happy 100th birthday

100 year anniversary Greyhound Bus

Saturday we visited a touring display of historic Greyhound buses. The company is 100 years old this year. Happy Birthday Greyhound.

Love in a Vase

I’m a very lucky man to have found a woman who can put up with me and I her. I try to show it from time to time with words and gestures. These are just  a couple $10 bouquets from Super Target that made me a hero for a day. If you’ve found the love of your life don’t forget to show them and tell them. And if you haven’t, I wish you great success in your search

Good Golly Miss Molly!

Here’s Molly the Mexican jumping bean who wouldn’t hold still for 2 seconds to get her glamour shot taken. Maybe in a couple years after she’s slowed down a little we’ll try again. Out of 50 captures this is the only one we even got close to critical focus on.

Imagination required

Had a nice walk to the beach the other day – standing under a Madrona tree shooting out to the Puget Sound. Imagining it was summer – and warm…

Darby Girl

She’s a rescue with a heart of gold. Or maybe I’m just a sucker for a shaggy dog 8^)

Great Falls

2014-10-30 15.12.34

Panorama shot of Great Falls Park, Virginia. As I recall the area here is the boundary between the Piedmont Plateau and the Atlantic Coastal Plain. I spent loads of my childhood exploring this area and sunning myself on the flat rocks.

What the Hell???

A friend brought her two dogs over to our house for a playdate/cookout last month and this was Stanley’s reaction to interlopers inside the castle walls. He ended up having a good time with them but I don’t think he was sorry to see them go!

Over the wall

Did the two leaves escape over the wall? or are they late to the party?
