Upcoming Exhibit: Sun Shadow Ice & Snow, Seasons on the Panhandle Trail, August 23 and 24

NOTE: I had planned this year’s exhibit in early spring, well before I learned my hip was on its way out for usefulness and needed to be replaced, planned for October. As the exhibit drew near I found I couldn’t print and frame all the photos I’d intended, so I decided to save that idea […]

Civil War Days Living History Photos

I’ve added another solo exhibit to my list of exhibits: Civil War Days Living History Photos. In April 2011 and April 2012, as part of the commemoration of the 150th Anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War, ACFL&MH also hosted re-enactment events held in Carnegie Park where re-enactors encamped and staged historic battles. I […]

“That Green One in the Back” from “Lost My Marbles”

I had a great time photographing this bunch of marbles and took so many playing around with angles and focal depth. This image is focused on “that green one in the back”. I found this bunch of marbles in the soil of a yard where I lived years ago. None is valuable, but are all […]

Open Water – Today

I found open water and lots of color even though it’s still just early March. Sometimes I need to awaken my creative senses with a taste of the natural world. Often these aren’t planned excursions but extemporaneous visits to places I know well while I’m running errands. I return with more than I’d set out […]

A Gallery of Fiery Winter Sunsets, “I Chased A Sunset”

Racing over acres of the park to watch the sun drop below the far horizon, the bare silhouetted trees, the perfect shading in the sky from violet through red to yellow, the violet snow, the final fiery red blaze before it all faded—and all nature made, I was only there to record it. Really, on […]

Temperatures were near zero with occasional snow but the Full Wolf Blood Moon lunar eclipse was pretty neat to watch, even if the photos are a little soft. I thought I’d share my photos from the lunar eclipse on my photo blog Today: Full Wolf Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse – Today

Sah’Side Pittsburgh

I stepped out of a shop on a lukewarm January day and saw a feast of color and detail. “Sah’Side”. It’s still one of my favorite photos of Pittsburgh. If you know Pittsburgh, PA, you know that “Sah’Side” is how we pronounce “South Side” in Pittsburghese, and also that part of town is just as […]

From a Spontaneous Photo Shoot at Dusk to Holiday Cards

I was hoping for a fantastic sunset as I drove home from errands, but no luck tonight. With a light dusting of snow, a gentle snowfall began again as dusk began to fall, and the clouds remained resolutely solid gray. Still, I got some nice photos as I drove through Settler’s Cabin Park where I’d […]

Colorful Little Crabapples on a November Day, “Unexpected Berries” Holiday Cards

Has someone decorated the bare trees for the holidays? Yes, Mother Nature! I took this photo on a similarly gray day and those colorful little apples looked as if they glowed and the bare branches had a wonderful silvery cast. Walking in the quiet of a winter day I see some of the most beautiful […]

Red

Individual leaves of Virginia Creeper are beginning to turn its characteristic bright, warm red here and there. It’s considered a weed, but I find it essential to the autumn landscape because no other leaves are the same brilliance, and the berries feed birds and wildlife all winter. Sometimes the scene is just visually stunning, especially […]
