Featured Gallery: Dramatic Light

It’s hard to believe I captured these stunning photos on a morning in March! Really, it was March 10, 2017 when I raced to capture the sun breaking through heavy clouds after a snow and ice storm the night before. When I saw the snow that morning, just an inch or two carefully blanketing each […]

Sah’Side Pittsburgh On A Sort Of Sunny Day

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 […]

A Walk in Black and White Film

I loaded a roll of black and white film into my old Pentax K1000 and headed out to walk to the grocery store, bringing back images from around my neighborhood along with my groceries.

Autumn Explorations in Black and White

Why photograph the most colorful season in black and white? To challenge what I see and what I think I know, to see the shapes and details and the compositions, leaving me with textures and patterns that are the foundations of my compositions. The colorful leaves and amber sun, all the comforting warm tones, change […]

That was a long time ago but it still holds true, and not just for heat waves and summer storms. This rain is truly […]

The Thunder Moon, Misty and Mystical

I hadn’t wanted a misty moonrise, but I am oh so glad nature changed my mind. Nothing can capture a black and white image like film in a camera. In 2006 I was still using a few film cameras, and loved shooting black and white with my old friend, my Pentax K-1000. For this idea, […]

Headed for the Beach

Seagulls are rarely this organized, but they certainly looked amusing marching in unison. Really, I wouldn’t mind at all if I was marching with them on the beach. Taken on Hilton Head Island, SC when I visited my niece and her children who live in Savannah. Get a print of this photo
