Forsaken Farm

04Aug12

In my last post I talked about exploring new ideas while continuing to shoot my usual subjects. That certainly includes my love for old barns. I often say in jest that I could make an abandoned barn, coffee table book. On a recent trip and early morning shoot I captured this barn that begged to […]


Evolving

03Aug12

There hasn’t been a post from me in recent weeks because I have been busy … evolving! (Or at least, trying to!) At the beginning of this year I began examining my work and goals. I thought ‘what now … more of the same … where do I want to go from here?’ The thing […]


Inside Fonthill

07Jul12

In May I had the opportunity to shoot inside Fonthill Castle in Doylestown, PA. Photography inside is not normally allowed however photographer and workshop leader, John Barclay graciously invited me when he had an opening in a shoot he had planned with Tony Sweet and a few friends. I had been there a little over […]


Flower Power

04Jul12

Flowers are a popular photography subject and understandably so. I know I can’t resist the temptation to shoot them no matter how common. For the most part I like to use a shallow depth of field to create a more abstract composition rather than an image that’s purpose is to record the structure of the […]


We saw something odd hanging out of one our birdhouses a couple of days ago when it was quite hot. We looked through the binoculars but couldn’t make it out so I went outside to take a closer look and found out it was a Northern Flying Squirrel. Since they are nocturnal (rodents) it is […]


Misfits

24Jun12

In going through my Smoky Mountains images one last time I found a few stragglers I wanted to process. These ‘misfits’, that didn’t seem to go with my other posts conclude my series about the trip. The only thing missing from the 4 full days and 2 half days of dedicated shooting are some wildflower […]


Cabin Fever

21Jun12

The cabins along the Roaring Fork Motor Trail posted last month were just the tip of the iceberg! Even though I did my research on the Smokies I was surprised at just how many log cabins and other structures there were. We made several stops along the Cades Cove Loop Road and went exploring for […]


There’s been several bear sightings this spring in places where they are not normally seen. Last week there were sightings close to home, in the neighboring townships of Medford and Atco, New Jersey. Reactions seem mixed and I am not sure if they are trying to find and relocate the bear(s) or not. In the […]


Much of our shooting while in the Smokies was centered around Cades Cove. I’m not sure how many times we went around the loop, and explored the side roads too. Once a thriving, mountain and farming community it was easy to imagine how it was. In addition to the cabins, other structures and bears the […]


The Great Smoky Mountain National Park is loaded with historic structures; mills, barns, schoolrooms, churches and many cabins. It was both interesting and a fun exercise to stop at each site and create some compositions. Even though the light was not always ideal, I tried to make the best of things, worked the scenes and […]
