I enjoy photography and creative non-fiction writing. I take college courses a little at a time in both venues. I am happily involved in church activities. I volunteered at the Capital Area Humane Society. I belong to an online photography club called betterphoto.com along with several other internet sites.
I love capturing a moment in time and sharing it. I shoot almost anything that seems to summon me, animals, landscapes, lines and textures, colors, life in general. I believe photography can help us change our perspective. I really am excited when I photograph everyday details.
I love happy accidents like finding an out of commission train car, a hand lettered sign on a lonely country road or the flaking but vivid paint on an alley dumpster. It is awesome when after spending an entire afternoon chasing a particular image only to discover that the best work of the day came as a “throw away” shot just before packing up in frustration. Embracing the serendipity that happens regularly everyday can lead to spectacular surprises.
Added to my photography are digital creations. I have come to find filters and other post processing actions that change an actual photograph to another form or art. The photo then becomes two pieces of communication. It is fun to try to find bits of the original image in the newly generated art.
I continue to explore this interest and learn something new every day.
To capture and share evidence of a higher power and the realities of man.
