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.

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 spouse 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!

  3. I have abandoned my darkroom, too. I still have a Nikor enlarger and a bunch of 35 mm and 120 reels, but I doubt that they are worth much now. I printed for 40+ years, too. I missed it at first but not so much anymore. I thoroughly enjoy your work and I feel yours is among the best of the photo blogs I follow. You may have to forgive my lack of comments, I’m afraid. Sometimes the day slips away from me.

    1. In the later years I had all of the darkroom gear but no darkroom…the work was done in a temporary space so not much got done. I would have given up on photography if digital hadn’t come along.

      I am glad to hear you enjoy my photographs…Thanks so much for the kind comments, Ken.
