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:

- 2.0 GHz MacBook with 4 GB RAM/3.2 GHz iMac with 16 GB RAM; OS X v 10.11.6

- 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.
