There is no pretense of grandiosity in my work. I just try to have fun and offer a little insight through snapshots and musings on the perfectly ordinary sights that scroll through my days. I relish the pictures that are so easy to miss - like a sun-accented figure in a plowed mound of melting snow, or skewed focus on a section of discarded ductwork that begs for a cheeky title. It's all a measure of serendipity and whimsy. Hopefully, there is a mood, texture, pun or story to be savored in each.

Art has always been a spiritual guide, including a few years immersed in clay. At inspired bursts in my life and travels I've picked up my camera to shoot what appealed to me. Naturally, I've photographed the spectrum of people to landscapes, but I especially seek that fulfilling moment when I actually "see" an image. Please have fun exploring the meaning of my titles in the context of what you see, remember and imagine. I try to stay in reality, but there are no guarantees. However, these digital images are, for the most part, minimally edited for sharpness, exposure and saturation in the spirit of the darkroom.
