Dutiful honey bee plying her trade. Drinking her nectar and loading her pollen basket, she works with intent. With energy and purpose she minds her craft. Even alone the hive is on the mind. Her community needs her; needs her singular focus to feed and to provide. To sustain the group. Bounding atop pistils by […]
Keep up with my latest photographs and thoughts
Here you'll find my complete archive of photographs—excepting my nine portfolio photos. I welcome you to drift through my array of photographs made since this site's launch in January 2014. While my best work manifests in landscape and nature photography, writing has proved a growing passion as time drifts on. I hope you enjoy.
On the perils of labels. It is easy to apply limits in how we label ourselves. There is a push-pull tearing at the labels we self-apply measured against the labels others seek to apply. In this post I take a look back at how I’ve evolved my own self-limiting thinking. Analyzing how I worked to embrace a wider array of labels related to my photography and writing. Reviewing my progress from technician to creator.
Hardship is inevitable. It comes sure as a summer storm. Negative energy builds, tensions rise only to bow to the pressure. The storm hits, emotions roil and churn, and then, at the nadir of the struggle, the onslaught slackens. The skies clear and we stand ready to learn, left only with the courage to grow. This is our choice.
Discomfort is inevitable. It is the uncomfortable space challenging us to grow. Creativity is an outlet to work through the upheaval of uncertainty. It brings our insecurities and fears out into the world and transforms them into something beautiful. It sparks a thought, a conversation, a love. It creates the new to conquer the old.
Sunsets ignite remembrance. Firing up passion and energy in our mind, body, and soul. It is the multicolored power force of last light. Bouncing rays of light dancing proud in clouds and prisms. We feel this energy. We feed from this energy. In so doing we remember.
With COVID-19 again on the rampage, and society disrupting as we take a long hard look at our centuries old problem of racism, we stand assaulted by uncommon uncertainty. The friction is causing extreme heat and pressure looking to loose. Not since the Second World War has the United States faced such intense difficulty. Riven and fractured it is essential we challenge ourselves to remain upright during such an extreme moment in history.
Rainbow colored pastel sunsets casting hues on cotton candy clouds is a vision of beauty and diversification. Unfortunately our society has yet to embrace the panoply of wholeness which will spring forth from a freer, more open society. A society healed of its racial past, and ready and willing to embrace the beauty and benefits of all her citizens. Our BIPOC brothers and sisters need our support, and I am here to listen, and to help as best I can.
Nature is love. Love is nature. At blue hour the dance of night and day intwine in splendor to show the whole world how passion yearns. A photograph captures this dance, this light play, this teachable moment, and allows us to share in its glory long after the moment itself.
Served here a dreamy 35mm photo of a lilac blossom. Shot wide open at f/1.4, it features soft focus and smooth bokeh, cross processed to a green hue. As we lose ourselves in the fantasy of this photograph, we muse upon our futures.
Manahawkin, NJ based landscape photographer Greg Molyneux shares a wide angle landscape photograph of the beloved Cedar Run Dock Road salt marsh at sunset. It’s a photo he’s made dozens of times before, but here he reflects on what a return to the marsh out of exile from COVID-19 isolation means to his psyche.
