Moving into the light…

A slot canyon in Borrego State Park, Borrego Springs, CA.

It has been suggested that I spend more time editing some of my photography. Not because it’s bad, rather to make it more appealing to judges of photo contests. Peer recognition and public accolades are not something I would usually seek, but it does bring a little added credibility to the art. So, I’m trying out this image with a bit of a boost to the contrast and saturation. The home page of my site has the unedited version. I may transition to this version depending on what the feedback might be. 

It’s gonna be a long night…

Taken in Bengaluru, India. An elderly woman strings small blossoms into long garlands that people will buy for morning prayers in just a few hours. She will work well into the early hours of the morning to see a six foot strand for about $2 or less that took her several hours to string.

Canyonville is calling

In the rambling Umpqua river valley just west of Canyonville, Oregon, is an idyllic historic home, lovingly curated back to former glory. Waving grain fields, natural spring waters and a serenity that is unmatched.

I shot the walk though video of this home and assembled this video for the realtor to use.
