Being Busy

Juggling frequent trips to Minneapolis, a two hour drive, to help sort out my 94 year old mother’s health care needs has put a slight damper on my photography work lately.  However, thanks to the pressure of having to get three pieces ready for the upcoming Earth Day Art Crawl in Duluth, I kicked it into high gear and managed to not only get those ready, but also framed or matted several other pieces.  I also edited and sent out to the printer seven images, five of which will be on canvas.  Although I’m making another trip to Minneapolis this week, I will be looking forward to picking up the new pieces when I return.  For those who may be in the Duluth area in April, you can find info about the Art Crawl here.  I will be at the Art Dock in the DeWitt Seitz Marketplace on April 22nd for the reception, maybe see you there?

Being One With the Flow


Light changes

Water flows

Each moving with a rhythm tied to nature

A lesson for us to observe.

Time with Trees


After a couple of trips to the big city, it feels good to spend some time away from the hubbub of metropolitan energy and spend a bit of time in the northern woods.

The Old Fishing Shack

A well known landmark on Stoney Point, prints are available.



This shack is famous along the north shore of Lake Superior.  I’m sure it has been photographed hundreds, if not thousands of times.  I know I have captured it in various lighting conditions, different seasons and a very strange close-up of the window on the door.  It involved flies and a reflection of my hands.  If you are ever on the north shore, head up the scenic highway and look for a street sign for Stoney Point Rd.  Besides the shack, there is also some great ledge rock that, under the right wind conditions, can produce some fantastic waves that crash against the rocks.  It’s also a popular spot for surfers.  That’s right, I said surfers.  You would be surprised by how many surfers live around here and surf the inland sea.

The Tenuous Edge of Seasons


Sliding slowly toward a new state of physicality,

bonds loosen, water shifts from one state to another,

winter loses its grip and we ease into spring.

Photo Bombed



This is an image from several years ago when I was able to spend a few hours in New York.  I did my best to take advantage of every minute I was there. I had five hours from the time I got off the train at Penn Station and had to be back on the train to catch a flight out of Newark.  I managed to visit the Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park and Rockefeller Center.  I realize I barely scratched the surface and know I will be returning someday.
