It wasn't my idea but I took a several week vacation from printing -- or even photographing very much.  It seems that I had a disagreement about right of way with a cat that ran between my legs at a strategic moment and instead of stepping on him fell and cracked a rib...

I'm going to start putting a new quotation on the home page of my website each month.  I have been accumulating quotations about art -- mostly photography -- for a very long time.  I have enough to last me for several lifetimes.  This month's is by Emmet Gowin.  It is...

"In no way do I believe that I have my own fairy godmother who has sown little miracles in my path throughout my life.  Rather, I believe miracles pop up all the time and everywhere, but we forget to look for them.  What a joy to have been looking in the right directio...

This photograph from a street dance in Eugene Oregon in 1996 started me on a project that I call "Ecstatic Dancers" -- people who really enjoy dancing (not necessarily well or with exceptional skill).  Between the joy of the movement and of the music they enter into so...

Seeing Through a Glass

When we moved to a new (to us) house last spring I expected to have my darkroom built in a couple of months tops.  Right.  In early October -- six months later -- I made my...

I am more than pleased that one of my photographs from Paris is featured on today’s “yourdailyphotograph.com” (link below) – this site is done by Duncan Miller Gallery in Santa Monica.  Duncan Miller is one of the two *very* prestige photography galleries on the west c...

The March Print of the Month (or thereabouts) is from my project on Seattle's Pike Place Market "Regular Customer" (see: "Buy a Book" on my website) .  Some delightful soul had stenciled "except Sasquatch)" under the "NO SMOKING" sign -- and I, alas, didn't have my cam...
