Man's Best Friend

We live in very scary times. Anger, hostility and major confusion are all around us. This man, hugging his dog on a bench at Boston’s Public Library, seems to have found a sheltered Island from all this craziness. His devotion to the little dog is palpable.

Landscape Mantra

Stripted to its basics, this is a photograph of weeping willows and other trees surrounding a calm body of water. There’s a mottled sky overhead and no people to be seen. My additional goal for this image, besides rendering the landscape well, was to create in the viewer a meditative state that arises from seeing this view. I am well aware that it’s a conceit to believe I can but just trying was well worth the effort.
