  • Changes

    A leaf comes out in the spring. It lives all summer. Then something changes. The autumn weather turns cool. The leaf dies and falls to the ground. There are more changes. The weather gets cold. There’s freezing rain and then snow. It becomes bitterly cold. It’s the dead of winter. One day in late winter when the sun is a bit higher in the sky and the temperature gets above freezing, things begin to change again. As a sign of the coming spring, the snow and ice begins to melt and run off. Lying there, in the melting snow and ice of winter, is the leaf that came out last spring. It’s the leaf that lived last summer. It’s the dead leaf that fell in the autumn. Laying there, decaying and changing. It’ll provide nutrients for the new leaf that arrives this spring. Without changes there would be no life. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Friends

    This represents how two can be together yet separate, limbs reaching out with a slight touch sharing ideas and life’s passion with a strong and moral base. The two will last many seasons. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Lightning

    KABOOM! Nature displays her power in the blink of an eye using light, sound and heat. It’s mesmerizing and beautiful. It’s also exciting and dangerous. It’s a deadly display of energy that appears without warning. The most important thing is that after it happens you’re still around to say “WOW!!!” This image captures the “WOW” while eliminating the danger. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Monet Bridge

    This is the Monet Bridge at Cox Arboretum. The image was taken in mid-summer using a special camera that’s been modified to be sensitive to infrared light. Greens come out white and the blue skies can be cyan or dark depending on how the image is processed. Infrared images can be interesting and beautiful. This is certainly a different way of seeing things. Beautiful don’t you think? This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Prism

    This “Almost an Abstract” image shows a prism breaking sunlight down to colors of red, yellow, cyan and blue. Sometimes when things are broken down to their basic components interesting things are revealed. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Red Moonset

    It was very still. Not the slightest breeze was blowing. This beautiful red sunset behind bare trees created a somber moment, a quiet moment, and a time to stop and reflect. There was one thing missing though. It needed something to make the scene even more interesting, maybe even a little mysterious. It needed the moon. I used an image of the moon taken several days later, from a different part of the sky, late at night. I placed it in this image the same way a painter would do by painting in a moon where it’s needed. It works pretty well doesn’t it? This is a composite image. A good imagination can be a wonderful thing to have. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Red Water Drop

    This beautiful glass sculpture is actually a drop of Centerville tap water. This is what it looks like at 1/20,000th of a second. Timing is everything when you’re trying to capture an image like this. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Tsunami Origami 1

    Start with plain brown paper. A grocery bag will do just fine. Fold it, spindle it and mutilate it. Jump up and down on it and say bad words to it. Take it out in the driveway and run over it several times with the car. Photograph it using any technique available. Post process using any tool available. Work the image to a point where it’s esthetically pleasing. You’re finished. I decided to create a series of these images and I call the series “Tsunami Origami”. I call it Origami because it’s folded paper. I call it Tsunami because it’s folded paper that looks as if it was folded by going through a Tsunami. I also call it Tsunami Origami because, what the heck, that’s just fun to say. Try it….sooo nam ee or a gaum ee This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Blind Vase

    The juxtaposition of geometric lines produced by light passing through the venetian blinds and the organic lines caused by those lines passing through the glass vase creates a mild surprise and stimulates the imagination. To put it another way, it creates one of those “Hey, look at that!” moments. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Fish Out of Water

    Here’s a dead fish in the middle of the road, stinking to high heaven! I like the look on this poor guy’s face. It’s almost as if he’s thinking “What the heck happened?” It just wasn’t his day. The textures and the colors in this image are very nice. There’s also an emotional element of humor to the image. And looking at it you can almost imagine the smell, the emotion of “YUCK!!” This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Graffiti

    There are several things that attract me to this image. The colors of red and green are opposites and the two together create a tension. Tension may be an appropriate emotion considering the individual who most likely painted this. The blacks and whites provide a contrast and separation that adds to the tension. The texture of the peeling paint adds depth to the image. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Hiding in Plain Sight

    This image shows that sometimes even the best laid plans can have flaws. A drama in miniature unfolds. “I’ll hide behind this flower peddle and when a fly lands I’ll jump out and get it. It’ll never know I’m here.” His secrete is out. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Looking Back

    The leaf and the tree, the perspective, and the irony of the combination, all add to make this an interesting image. A dead leaf lies on the ground. Looking up from the perspective of the leaf is the tree it fell from. Some people can relate to the tree, some to the leaf. The idea is subtle. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Prairie Art

    The sun comes out, winter snow melts. The greens of summer, reds and yellows of autumn have disappeared to become beautiful hues of beige. Pale sandy fawn colors, grayish tans, grayish yellows combine with exotic and interesting shapes of seed pods as the remnants of last summer’s flowers and plants create a natural prairie art. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Ready and waiting

    Here she is lying anchored out, waiting right where you left her. It’s a beautiful calm autumn day. Imagine a leisurely sail along the New England coast. She’s waiting. Imagine. This image was taken in late September at the Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.

  • Red Tree in the Wind

    Summer is over and all of a sudden autumn arrives! This is life in the fast lane. You look up and there’s a blur of autumn color. This is life in the fast lane. Sometimes we need to slow things down so we can enjoy the beauty of our surroundings. Then if you need to, find an opening, check your blind spot, turn on your signal and pull back out to the fast lane. I like the bright colors in this image. I also like the selective focus on the trees and the horizontal lines formed by the leaves giving the illusion of movement, fast movement. This is my personal style, “I encourage the viewer to see things in a different way”.
