I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase that getting to the heart of something is like peeling an onion. Sometimes, it’s just not that hard. I was unpacking some groceries when an onion fell out of the bag and bounced on the floor. Off came the outer skin. I picked it up and thought, ” ah […]


So far, I’ve been mostly posting from Picture A Day 2008. I thought, since it is the start of a new month, that I would show you a picture that I made in the last 12 days. There are a couple of real nice frames tucked away in the general nonsense of what I’ve been […]


May is here. For me, producing a picture a day that means it’s download and post production time. Since I rarely review the month as I shoot it, this is always a very interesting time. How did I do is always a question. But, even more telling is that you can the events of my […]


I like to post to my blog in the morning. But, I’m a little late. The garden had a higher priority. There are tomatoes, and chilies, herbs and fruit — strawberries and blueberries as well as colorful flowers. Now the garden also has cedar chips which should keep it cooler in the heat of the […]

It seems to be a popular subject with agencies and clients so I thought that I would build a small collection of images that could be displayed on my website and distributed through my agencies. Fortunately, I’ve photographed street […]


I spent a good amount of time this morning updating my website with a new gallery called “Experiments Around The World.” It’s mostly about testing different processing techniques. Normally, my work is very colorful (some say too colorful), bright and energetic. This new gallery tests more muted and subdued color pallets as well as a […]


A few weeks ago I read a funny post on SAA concerning how little photo-graphy we actually do as compared to the rest of what we do in order to tell people about our work and ourselves. In addition to actually taking a picture for this PAD project, I have to process it — that’s […]


Since I can can be pretty obsessive, I will try to post a little something every day. I reckon that it I can shoot a picture a day, I can write a few words every day about the process of making a picture whether I want to or not. I’ve read a number of blogs […]
