Otter Point State Park, OR

If you want secluded beaches and vast open areas to wander on the coast Oregon has it. This photograph was taken last summer on a beautiful July morning. Like nearly all beaches we visited there was no one else there.

Philadelphia Freedom (and lines)

A day trip to Philadelphia had me seeing symmetry and patterns almost everywhere, from the Reading Terminal Market to Macy’s in the John Wanamaker Building to City Hall.

Jim Thorpe Christmas

Weekend getaway to Jim Thorpe PA to enjoy a storybook like Christmas village. No snow here but light rain lit up holiday lights reflected on the streets and storefronts are beautifully decorated for the season. It’s beautiful here.

Jug Handle Sate Park, CA


Vacation this summer was a 10 day road trip from the Columbia River to San Francisco along the Washington, Oregon and California coastline.  Photo opportunities were abundant in the many State and National parklands we visited and views from frequent roadside pull offs along Rte. 1 were a never ending treat of coastal vistas or redwoods.  We spent a couple of hours at Jug Handle State Park in CA where this early morning foggy scene greeted us.

Dwarf Palmetto

We were in Buxton on the Outer Banks for Thanksgiving and I’m just getting around to working with some images from that trip.  Along one of the nature trails in the National Seashore there were many dwarf palmettos.  From what I could, find this plant is at the northern most limit of its range on the Outer Banks. Its beautiful, radial symmetry is a fantastic photography subject and caught my eye on our hike.

Reflecting In Cambridge

Photographing through the window of a store front window in Cambridge MD recently an interesting reflection became part of the composition.  This was the scene as I saw it through the window glass.  A slightly surreal look at past, present and future at least as my mind’s eye sees it, as the empty store is planned for a new opportunity. Downtown Cambridge is sprouting new restaurants and stores all the time.  It’s a great place to visit.

Fresh Fish Today

A trip to the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia yesterday gave opportunity for many interesting and colorful subjects like these fish seemingly swimming upstream in an ice filled display case.

DC Lines

DC 2.26.2016_2240

Some business travel has kept me busy for a few weeks and so I have not posted for a while.  I was in DC recently and found this interesting perspective of the Washington Monument and the Capitol. Washington is so full of interesting architecture that creates fantastic lines and shadows.

Fields Of Old

Fields of old and fields of gold in this case.  Goldenrod is taking over an old farm field in rural North Carolina.
