  • A Look Back

    A Look Back

    Accountability check: I’m trying to dust off my photography hobby. I’ve made some photographs this summer, but have not brought it home via edits and blog posts. Here I am working through my backlog along with a brain dump of what I’ve been on about this summer.

  • The Way of Walking Alone

    The Way of Walking Alone

    The bumblebee works alone. Dutiful to his task, hard at it for his hive. Out in the world it is a solitary life of discipline and purpose. Skill builds for honing a craft with a singular drive, full of intention. What can we learn of the bumblebee? What can we learn of ancient masters?

    Caterpillars can set a mind to thinking. Imagine knowing such a profound metamorphosis would soon set upon you? How would that change your life and your perspective?

  • Dahlia Dreams

    Dahlia Dreams

    Serving up a soft focus dahlia on a Friday afternoon. Smooth and inviting this flower grows to soothe.

    Upright

    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…

    Home Again

    COVID-19 has given me time to work in the yard. With the cleanup has come better conditions for flower and plant life to thrive. Giving me ample opportunity to make macro photos without having to break any kind of social distance mores.
