Going Nowhere in Particular

I am glad you like my little ferry image. Nice little back story to that one. I was fairly new to Seattle and not always busy with work. I was friends with a guy who was a free spirit and like me, loved to make photographs. We would do this thing he called space cruising. We would set a time…

I am mailing out your prints today. Snail mail. Look for them. When you get them you will find 7 prints and a CD. Without looking at them closely or reading the notes on the back of each print, lay them all out in good light. Good light is a relative term. I laid them out on the floor of…

It had to be high enough for Carter to…

Matthew, You raise interesting questions about my older work and how I might bring it to my newer work. For many reasons, is not entirely possible really. My older work was mostly black and white.

Michael, Sounds like you are doing ok, and have things pretty well worked out for your future. I think you told me at some point about building your new home. I have forgotten how large your property was and that it could be sub divided to accommodate so many more homes. Will new homes crowd you and take away that…
