  Two new additions to the uneditioned print offerings, all of which are on sale through the holidays. The top image was made in 2014 on a trip in eastern WA with Jeff Corwin, along one of those tiny roads that yields rewards unforeseen. This is one of 3 or 4 5×7 large format exposures [...]

the long circuitous road that lead to my guitar presence here- I played drums for a high school band called The Motives, who, at a small lakeside resort ballroom called Vasa Park, won a battle of the bands. One of those bands was A Boy and His Dog, Ann Wilson sang lead. We were all [...]

  After a few darker pieces I did mention somewhat guiltily that the next one would be “prettier”, here it is. Beyond that I’d like to let it speak for itself. Noteworthy though, I reconnected with my old friend David Nielsen, we played together for several years some time ago, and share a lot of musical [...]

  After an extended break, this is the first offering in several months. It won the facebook poll as favorite of three. I have been photographing various Begonias around our front door for years, from cell phone snaps, film, and to this approach. This is a digital capture, made with an older Zeiss/Contax lens, very [...]

I’ve let this lag this year due to other priorities, and reconsideration of it’s continuation. For now, I’ve extended the discounted prices began last holiday season through August.

I had occasion to try to write something that might be helpful for people viewing some of my work at an upcoming show. Since it applies to my work generally, and might be more successful than my usual attempts at the impossible task of “explanation”, I thought I’d post it… My photographs are not descriptive, [...]

Retribute

  Another in a string of what may seem like grim metallic pieces.. in fact I almost titled this one “grimm”. Is the feel of the times is creeping into my activities? Maybe, but it has more to do with what I was working on in the ‘90s. This being another rework and completion of [...]

the description on the youtube page is explanatory, finally decided to put it here too.  

The first offering for the new year is an old image, but one I’ve always liked for it’s silvan mood and intricacy, very “northwesty”. I used to do solitary carefree road trips in a crappy old gas guzzler, with all my photography and camping gear. This was 1982, during a trip that included parts of [...]
