As a kid in East Texas my family didn't own a camera.   During the Vietnam War I joined the Air Force.   I was in new places, seeing new things, so I wanted pictures.   I knew nothing about photography I thought you simply pushed the button and made a picture.   I bought a very simple Kodak camera and started talking pictures.   My real interest started when the pictures didn't seem to show what I wanted.   I realized there was more to photography than just pointing the camera and pushing the shutter release.   I started reading and...more

Pops is unusual in several ways: 1. It has built a business on pop which is available virtually anywhere and everywhere, but not in the variety you find here. I saw "Ranch Dressing Pop" for example and what seemed like thousands of other flavores.... 

I can walk out of my house and find something interesting to shoot, but it's more fun to go to a cool location. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be in Salt Lake City, Utah for several months. Then I had a fun assignment to photograph point...

If you look through my images you'll find I'm not very specialized, I shoot a fairly wide variety of subjects. I often shoot fairly normal everyday things which I find interesting, beautiful... I do considerable post processing to enhance my images, ... 

Local Beauty

Sunup, Fog, and Farmland

November 24th, 2015

I enjoy shooting more than editing and posting images. I'd like to shoot every day, but usually it's only once or maybe twice a week. Even shooting that little I find my image library is growing faster than I can keep up. When I planned a simple... 

Can You See

This is my first post here. I also have a blog which is for photographers, but I beleive this blog should be written for those who appreciate photography as art. I intend to write about some of the images I make, the story behind certain images, also...
