The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On

In recent months, I've been busier than a three-balled tomcat.  Not having as much fun as the tri-baller, though -- mostly work, work, work for me. It was time to take a much needed break.

Today, I finally sorted through hundreds of photos I took on my vacation about … Continue reading Trying To Make A Dollar Out Of Seventy-Five Cents

The Birds In Your Garden Sang The Truth

Did some more polaroiding with vintage cameras. The model/muse this time was my daughter.  She had to hang upside-down for quite some time for me to get the shot.  She was patient and amazing, as always. The above photo was inspired by the work of Ray in the late 1920's.  Moved by a general idea/pose, I … Continue reading The Birds In Your Garden Sang The Truth
