Welcome to my galleries where I hope to share whatever Visual project I am developing.

     There were several photographic highlights for me this year (2023) that I look back on with joy. I participated in a fast moving but fun Portrait Slam last winter that took place at the beautiful Belle Fiore winery in Ashland,OR and came away with a few images that pleased me. This Fall I got lucky and managed to get a view of the Annular solar Eclipse that passed through our area despite a pretty good cloud cover by going up to Willow Lake.  And this time I actually stopped to enjoy the mysterious ( cloudy) experience with a pair of Solar binoculars that brought the eclipse up close and personal. As I told a dear friend who was with me, I will remember this other worldly experience the rest of my life.
      We are entering into a strange period in 2023 ... almost a regression or undoing of everything that made up the passage of our years. I continue selling work at Gallery One on G St., the Museum is still functioning, I am enjoying our  talented Wild Rivers Photography Group, the Pickleball Tournaments are rolling around on schedule but  now gas stoves are anathema, dark chocolate is dangerous, and wine is not so good for your health after all. Nature is under more and more threat of extinction  and now I feel the pressure to see some of her magnificence before it disappears for good.

     Gun Violence and the Ukrainian War to survive have dominated the first half of 2022. On a more local level, I am still putting together a group of photos from the devastating 2020 Almeda fire , one of the issues facing our rural area for an October group show at Club NW.  Meanwhile, one of the photos, 'End Times' ,was accepted into the Umpqua Valley Arts Show called 'RURAL' which will run from June 17th through the 16th of August in Roseburg,OR. Another photo, Jetboat Sunset, has been selected to be enlarged and shown in a downtown window for our community Library's walkabout Storybook Project. Along with the traditional town 'bears', it will be a fun summer to visit our little town. 

       Covid-19 continued to turn our lives upside down in 2021  and yet I was able to find joy and peace in a  second camping trip to Lassen. This time we visited Butte Lake and took on the challenge of climbing the 'Cinder Cone' . It was well worth it, the spectacular views and volcanic barrenness. In the Fall, I spent a few days  enjoying the beaches of Bandon from the now defunct Bandon Beach motel. We loved seeing the whale spoutings  from our room and had 2 wonderful nights of photographing the Milky Way as the fog drifted in and out.
