Hand-Held 4×5


This is from several years ago. Madam and I had gone to San Francisco with the Crown Graphic. At one point my tripod lost a leg segment.

This family asked me to photograph them with their camera, then I said it was my turn and I used the CG.

Take care and chase photons.

Shot with smartphone camera, edited in Light Room mobile (iPad).

April we took the train to Iowa to visit a friend. No heavy artillery on this trip; just the phone and the Canon G12.

Express Abstractionism

This is frame 2 of my 365 project for 2013.

The goal is a daily photo that fits the theme of “Express Abstractionism”.

I’m not going to define the concept any further; I want to keep it fluid.

To view the whole project stop over at my Flickr stream.

Across The Fence


I was waiting for my coffee to brew; slouched against the counter, I had been staring blankly out the back door, when my pre-coffee brain dimly awoke to the recognition of an image.

Now that my coffee is at hand I can consciously reflect on what I’ve dome.

Just the way the light falls is what drew me to this shot.

How Shadow Falls


Photographers have an obsession for light, but light is also shadow. “Light is the left hand of darkness” – Ursula K. LeGuin.

What we really love is the way light and shadow combine.



My hands are sore from digging. Today’s photo is of as-a-mundane subject as one could wish. With my iPhone during a quick break.
