New Photo Collection Coming


My new “Lifetime Body of Work” photo collection is almost ready. The 950 best photos out of the roughly 47,000 in my various hard drives are divided into 12 categories. The winners are just two one hundredths (.02%) of the total. As a preview, here are my favorites from each group. More to come. Watch this space.

    These are a pleasure to see, beautiful and fascinating. Heartwarming and visually exciting. What a fun project for you: taking the photos and sorting through them.

    Thank you Rick. I am looking forward to the more to come. Some of these I have seen before. Others are new to me. As Susan posted, these were heartwarming and visually exciting. Two in particular that were new to me caught my attention. The Supreme Court and Pfeiffer Beach.

    Your remarkable SC photo, for me, captures the politicization of the Court and the momentum seemingly underway to over turn Roe v Wade. The lone youthful visitor wearing richly textured casual clothes slouching next to those imposing Greek Corinthian columns. Youth standing in contrast to the cold, colorless, and calcified shrine that represents the rule of law, Now stripped of humanity. Overwhelming the only human in the frame.

    In contrast, Pfeiffer Beach is hot and wild. Filled with action and brilliance. Reminding us of the unbridled and kinetic power of nature.

    Thanks again, and am looking forward to more.

    I love your photos! Am hoping to see your shorebirds. I think they were taking off, but not sure. Congratulations on this collection!

    You have caught the quiet or dramatic moments with such beautiful intensity!
    Thanks photographs must be markers of your own life. Cheers!
