The Tree Ballet

There is no easy way to title this photograph. The figures in at are a total disconnect. On the right six women seem to be engaged in some sort of project while on the left a girl with a red shirt and sox swings wildly from a tree branch.

It doesn’t make any sense.

I love it!

Boston’s Public Garden

Because we live so close, it is easy to take for granted the garden’s beauty. As today was cooling down, I wandered by and was struck hard by it once again. 

Magic Mist #2

Here the mist is doing its magic on an entirely different scene–a wide black and white shot of a man hiking. Very different from the constrained vertical color portrait that preceded it. That being said, the subtile misty shrouds that envelop the image just make it a meditation of a different kind. 

A Couple Of California Landscapes

Truckee Sunrise

As a lot of you know I normally don’t post photographs of landscapes. Today is an exception. Yesterday we spent the day in Truckee, California with my wife’s son. Truckee is a little town over 7000 feet high in the Sierra mountain range. It’s very near Donner Pass and is a haven for rock climbers, mountain bikers, hikers and skiers. The air is thin up there and the views are spectacular!

A Beautiful Cement Plant?!

Well, probably not but, the flowers and billowing clouds don’t hurt the cause.

Ugly Beauty

Here’s three photographs I took of a flock of vultures sitting on pilings along the Petaluma River. These big birds are just flat ugly as creatures but there was something powerful and, dare I say, even majestic about this gathering. 

Just Waiting

I’d like to tell you a story about this photograph. However there isn’t one. I just liked the composition. There is even the possibility that it might eventually turn into a black and white image. However that’s not very likely as i’d loose the snap of the red striped poles.
