A Pete Seeger Story

Pete Seeger died the other day at the age of 94. Long thought of someone who’s time had past, Pete, in fact, remained relevant in  folk/traditional music and the environmental community up until his last days.

Hand holding in low light

I am asked fairly regularly about how to photograph in low light situations where tripods are either not allowed or not possible. Examples might be at an indoor dance performance, inside a cathedral, twilight photography from a tour boat or even just travel photography on a dark and dreary day. So there are two parts […]

The house is quiet now, only the slow sleepy breathing of three black dogs stirs the air. Abe, my old lab, lies beside me on this dog hair-covered couch, his breathing uneven now but on pace with the dream-twitching of his back legs. We had a big walk in the snow today and his recovery […]
