I hope you enjoy my view of the world. I love to find the abstract in the real, especially in the natural world. Sometimes people ask "What is it?" Don't worry about it. If we could see even 1% of the world around us for what it is, our heads would be spinning! If you can, go outside today, regardless of the weather or where you are, and enjoy what is around you. While most of these were shot with various digital cameras, I do very little processing—basically I use Elements to adjust contrast and brightness and crop. Enjoy!

Bio

I love to look at the world through a viewfinder! It helps me see what is there for when I don't have a camera to my eye. While I love to travel to "exotic" places, and often do, I also love the familiar: my back yard and many special places within a few miles of where I live here in Central Vermont. Sometimes I feel like I don't even "see" until I've spent hours looking!

I'd appreciate any comments about my work anytime.

Also, none of my photographs are heavily processed, just a little adjustment of contrast and brightness.

Interestingly, my "day job" involves teaching people to see in another waveband—8-12 microns or infrared light. My "mug shot" is a thermal image of me.
