Welcome to my photography website. With this blog I hope to keep people up to date with my latest forays into the field. I have always been inspired by Nature's beauty and taking these pictures gives me an excuse to spend time there.
Some of my photographs have been digitally processed but generally the flower pictures are untouched, except for removing blemishes and making exposure adjustments. I find those pictures to be so perfect in their original expression that nothing can be added to them. In saying that I'm not trying to suggest that I am improving on nature, in the pictures that I have manipulated, but that with some of my adjustments I have been able to isolate, emphasize, or reveal certain aspects of what I feel is the essence of the scene. That's what the artist does!
One other thing to note about these pictures is they are generally shot in walking distance of my house. Limiting myself to this very narrow geography makes me sensitive to the rhythms of nature in general and this place in particular. I think that there is a value in knowing and loving where we live. I am lucky to live where I do. Thank you for taking the time to look around.
