More Oldies-2

There was a time when I spent every April photographing desert flowers in Arizona. I haven’t been back in two decades but looking at this image it makes me want to go back and do it all over again. I took this Globemallow with my Pentax 6×7 medium format camera. It wasn’t very good for […]

Sol Duc Falls in Olympic National Park, Washington is one of my all-time favorite places in the world. It is a ¾ mile hike through a magnificent old forest to get to the falls and there are photographs everywhere. Go there on a quiet, misty day or even a lightly raining day- the light will […]

  I just found this photo of the same bear that is even worse! Talk about composing in an uncomfortable way! I see this all the time during critiques and image reviews- closer is not always better. You’ve got to let the animal, or kid have space to move into otherwise it looks like solitary […]

Old Errors

One of the results of me going through all my old slides and picking a few to be scanned (by Scancafe) is that I had some fun looking at old images and reliving old memories that had faded with time. The memories are always fond but not all the images I see are always perfect. Many, […]

Facebooking!

I know, who would’ve thought! Yes I am now active on Facebook. I’ve had a Facebook page for many years but I have not actively contributed to it but now I am. I will soon have the two linked so anything new on one appears on the other. My Facebook page is strictly a professional […]

It is that time of the year when Winter is mostly gone but Spring hasn’t quite sprung yet. What’s a photographer to do? I find that most nature and outdoor photographer, actually most all photographers wait for the perfect day, perfect situation before they start to take pictures. That of course makes sense but it […]
