  • Australian Tea Tree Study

    I went to Oakland and the surrounding San Francisco Bay area in Feb of 2012; while I was there I was struck by the gnarly looking trees that surrounded Lake Merritt. I remembered similar trees in the La Jolla Cove near San Diego and wondered what they were. Turns out they are an Australian tea tree named Leptospermum laevigatum. I found them very interesting and spent an early morning there shooting several of them.

  • Mike Fink's Stern Wheel

    This is the stern wheel of the riverboat Mike Fink’s which is on the Ohio River in Covington just across from Cincinnati. Used as restaurant and bar for decades it has recently fallen into disrepair, even though there were efforts to refit the hull to keep it from sinking.

  • Manzanillo Fishing Boat

    In the early 1990’s I traveled the Mexican Riviera and was lucky enough to go to a little coastal fishing village called Manzanillo. There were several runabout craft that were very colorfully painted and I decided to use one of the photos for a “digital finger-painting” experiment in the very early days of Photoshop. There weren’t any layers or multiple undo’s in those days and each of the smudges took my computer about 5 minutes to complete.

  • San Felipe Fishing Boat

    Later in the early 1990’s (1993 I believe), I rode my motorcycle throughout Sonora and Baja Norte Mexico. San Felipe was a small town in coastal that had similar fishing boats pulled up on the shore. Some were still in uses while others were unusable

  • Light and Horsehair study

    While at a polo match in Naperville IL I caught the sunset shining off the haunch of a sweaty horse, which made very interesting shapes.

  • Golden Gate Surfer

    While in San Francisco I walked to the end of Golden Gate Park where there was a surfing contest going on. I caught this shot and thought it would be a good candiate for a "tilt-shift" experiment, which miniturizes the subject.

  • Bridal Veil Falls, Yosemite

    I lived in southern California for almost 18 years, and not once did I make it to Yosemite. Well, I corrected that oversight and took a day trip there while in San Francisco. This is a shot of Bridal Veil Falls also using the tilt-shift method.

  • Waterfall 25 years later

    When I was in photography school my sister Allison tasked me with shooting a photograph of a small waterfall. After two and a half decades I finally found one suitable to shoot.

  • Calla Lily study

    I have always liked Calla Lilies for some very personal reasons, and whenever I get a chance I shoot them. I saw this one on my way to get coffee one morning, and the interesting thing about this photo is this - I have tens of thousands of dollars in photo gear and equipment, but I shot this amazing photo with my iPad.
