We went back to Letchworth State Park for a second day of photography, this time focusing on intimate landscapes rather than the grand landscapes I showed in my last posting. The colors of the leaves remained at their peak, creating brilliant displays of the best the season has to offer. Following are some of theContinue reading “Autumn in New York”
This week I’ve been touring Letchworth State Park to photograph its dramatic scenery while adorned with autumn colors. You’ve been where? What’s Letchworth? Let me explain. Letchworth State Park is located about 50 miles from Buffalo and Rochester in upstate New York State. It consists off a valley with dramatic cliffs overlooking the Genesee RiverContinue reading “Autumn Colors at Letchworth”

Marcus Aurelius, one of Rome’s “good” emperors, shared the Stoic philosophy with millions through his Meditations. His thoughts have enriched my life enormously.
“Know thyself,” the famous words inscribed on the ancient temple at Delphi, underscore the importance of understanding oneself deeply. Self-understanding can be achieved at varying levels, however. One’s principal likes and dislikes, one’s inclinations toward or away from certain behaviors, even one’s chief virtues or vices lie at one level.

I was recently introduced to the technique in myContinue reading “Intentional Camera Movement”
I’ve not had much time for photography the last couple of months. It’s all due to the usual things: yard work, laundry, cooking (I cook a lot and love making bread), finishing up some woodworking projects, and so on. I think you know the drill. But I needed to make some photos for my photoContinue reading “Some Recent Close-Ups”
I’ve recently updated my site to include a selection of photos of railroad locomotives. Featuring both vintage steam locomotives and modern diesels, the photos are available for sale in several sizes. The larger size, 16 X 20 inches, looks especially good hanging on a den or hobby room wall. The photos may be viewed underContinue reading “New Photos Available for Purchase”
My friend Jeff Fleisher and I drove out along a lonely country road to a spot I know where, each spring, there is an extensive field of Virginia bluebells to be found and photographed. Situated in a lowland woods bordering meandering Goose Creek, these lovely wildflowers inhabit both sides of the river. While they’re easilyContinue reading “Virginia Bluebells”
