Mill Books

November 13, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
We found an abandoned sugar mill in Hawaii. We decided to explore and photograph the remains. This photo is of the books and records left behind in the old mill’s office building. After returning from the trip, Praxis Gallery had a Call for photos of "Empty Places, Abandoned Spaces." I submitted this photo, it was accepted, and will be exhibited in...

The Last Farmhouse

September 08, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Summer is over, some type of COVID is back, and the urban sprawl masters burned down the Last Farmhouse. It was a controlled burn. Smoldered for days. No one was hurt. The sprawl masters assured us that the smoke contained no lead, asbestos, fiberglass or other toxic chemicals, because those did not exist when the farmhouse was built 100 years ago.

Steel Away

April 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Pennsylvania did produce the bulk of the USA's steel, but in the last 50 years production dwindled. Photographers love the old abandon mills. This shot of fellow photographer Mike Holmes as a steel worker was juried into the 6th Annual Chania International Photo Festival and was exhibited on the Greek island of Crete. The photo also won a first pla...

Juggling Sand 2022 Retrospective

February 11, 2023  •  Leave a Comment
Juggling Sand is my 2022 retrospective. Some shots were taken before 2022, but they are in this book because they received recognition in 2022. There are more photos of people and abstractions - I look at it as people and poetry. The COVID word is being used less and less, but the world is still a messy place. We teeter on World War III involving U...

Only When It Rains

October 24, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
We had the models and classic cars all lined up, but we were running behind schedule. It was getting dark, rain clouds were moving in, and the cars had not yet arrived. Once the cars showed up, it began to rain. I few of us stuck it out and I got this classic "Woman in the Car Shot." I decided it looked better in Black and White as a film noir pic.

Going for a Ride

August 17, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
So we defeat COVID and now we have Monkey Pox, with Polio poking around. Time to take a ride as in Ride Sally Ride, Magic Carpet Ride, Save a Horse and Ride a Cowboy, Free Ride, My Ride's Here, Hitch a Ride, or Ride like the Wind. American music is ride centric. So buckle up, because the Bumpy Ride is not over yet.

July 4, 2022 Ocean City, MD

July 11, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
When I dropped this one off at the gallery today, the gallery assistant asked me if this was really what Ocean City looked like on the 4th of July. I told her it was. Her response, "Interesting Perspective." Was she implying that the photo has a hidden meaning or contains subtle social commentary? The last 2 years have been abstract, surreal, and...

Used Words

June 07, 2022  •  Leave a Comment
Over the early winter months of 2022, I experimented with some abstract photos. This photo was the result being at my desk late one night, and noticing how the single light in the room was reflecting off an unsigned contract I was about to throw in the trash. I began to play with the contract by rolling several pages and tying them together. I shot...
