HOW DO IT
Click any image to view that gallery, then you can click
on the thumbnails to see a bigger image. This is a sampling of my
work for the past couple of years.
WHY THESE IMAGES?
I selected these images because I like them. In the middle of a
long working day, it makes me happy to look at them.
And it's very cool if they make
you happy, too. I am all about being happy and making other people happy, too! Except maybe for extreme right-wing conservative
Republicans. And people who don't write clean HTML code with properly nested
tags and quoted attribtutes. And overly-aggressive, SUV-wielding Atlanta drivers who talk
more than they drive.
IN CASE YOU ARE DREAMING OF FAME AND
Needless to say, these are all copyrighted and
you can't copy them, etc.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN
Here is my very first camera, given to me on
my 6th birthday by my mother, who was an excellent
Alas, none of these images were made
with the Valiant. But it will photograph again! One day soon I will
order some 620 film for it, and make some very cool images that will
put those new-fangled Dianas and Holgas to shame.
DO YOU USE A DISPOSABLE
Only on my most photgraphically-insecure days. I
mostly use either:
A beat-up point 'n' shoot Canon
A-95. The resolution is a little passe and it's pixels certainly
don't match up with a DSLR, but I carry it everywhere and
I love the little flippy screen. -OR-
My trustworthy manual
focus Nikons -- an FM-2n and an FE-2. These things rock.
A Bronica ETRSi
outfit. I have fallen in love with medium format black and white
film, mostly Ilford Delta 100, 400 and 3200-OR-
4x5 behemoths - a Crown
Graphic and a Graphic View. I am still on the steep part
of the learning curve with these, but the negatives... oh
- my - God --OR--
The newest tool in the bag, a Nikon D50. I confess to a
lingering love/hate relationship with digital,
which the D50 has done little to resolve. It sure
does save time, though. And it's much better for
the planet than chemicals.
WHY DO YOUR GALLERIES LOOK SO...
WELL... UH... BASIC?
Hey, it was a big job to find all these
images, and then to tweak them in Photoshop and upload them. I
promise to code some cool-looking galleries soon. Maybe I'll add a
little random-image function so you'll always get different
Or, maybe I will leave the galleries
alone and get away from my desk and MAKE BEAUTIFUL IMAGES!
Peace to all.
