A brief moment by the lake before the cool breeze pushed back, then the moment was gone.  But, for that moment, an opportunity to commune with the Great Lake, to listen to the song of the waves, to be touched by the fingers of wind as they move through her hair.  How many more of these moments exist for her, for any of us?


What Does The Eye See?

Along the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon is an area of softer volcanic rock that has been worn away by the action of water and spinning rocks, creating potholes.  This is a common feature along many rivers, including the St. Croix on the Minnesota and Wisconsin border. The interplay of shape and light tricks the eye into imagining most anything…so what do you see?

Retrospective: “A Disturbing Pattern”

A visit to the veteran’s cemetery at Ft. Snelling in August, 2008, which is in Bloomington, MN, inspired this manipulation.  I was attracted to the pattern and and at the same time, depressed by the seemingly endless rows of headstones.  As I studied the image later, it occurred to me that flipping the image and stacking it with the original gave a better impression of the number of graves that would otherwise be difficult to show with a single image.  I appreciate how the image gives the impression the rows of headstones seem to go to on into infinity.
