Themes of nature, solitude, faith, impermanence, natural and cultural landscapes, the sky, and patterns in time and space, driven by a profound sense of the mystery of the world we live in,  motivate most of my photographs.

“Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh with astonishment,
and bow their heads”

~ Mary Oliver, from “Mysteries, Yes”

For those who are interested in such things, my equipment includes:

  • Nikon D7000 DSLR
  • Nikon D40 DSLR
  • Panasonic  Lumix DMC-LX7 Compact
  • Fujifilm X100T
  • 2.0 GHz MacBook with 4 GB RAM/3.2 GHz iMac with 16 GB RAM; OS X v 10.11.6
  • Lightroom 5
    • Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 plug-in
  • A small selection of Nikon lenses, a few filters, and an old Manfrotto tripod; I also have acquired a Manfrotto BeFree carbon fiber travel tripod which matches perfectly with the Fuji X100T

While the header photograph for this page might suggest that I still use film and a wet darkroom, I abandoned all of that, after nearly 40 years of it, for the digital world.

My wife and I make our home on a small farm in rural northeastern Ohio.  I have included a link to three of my essays on photography along with a general link to my other blog in the right side panel of this page.

I hope you enjoy your time here. Please leave comments if you are moved to do so.

  1. Hey Mic Wow…your b & w are impressive…someone once told me a b & w takes away all the distractions leaving what is important. I think your photos do that. I’m partial to b & w as well as abstract art/photos and find your photos draw me…in fact, when I realized I was at your post dated April 25th, 2013 I decided I had to get back to what I was supposed to be doing! 🙂 I think I am a lightmonkey…although I’ve learned to be more creative and compose my photos rather than just hoping for the best..I’ve learned a great deal in one year but when I look at work such as yours the understanding that there is so much more to learn is strong…thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Hi, are you a professional photographer? Your photos so captivating; each single photo seems to tell a story of its own, asking its viewer to find out more about the subject. You photos are an asset!
