Way back in June of 2016 Karen and I took a road trip to discover the covered bridges of Oregon. It was the furthest south on I-5 we'd traveled since moving to Oregon. What a fun adventure full of history and wonder.
Enjoy these pictures.
I'd been fascinated by the Galapagos since I was a boy dipping matches for uncle Jonny, who would be departing for the Galapagos on a sailboat long before eco-tourism made getting there easy.
I was inspired as a youth by the photography manipulations of Jerry Uelsmann, the stage set by Joel-Peter Witkin, the surrealist vision of Man-Ray and photography of the bizarre.
Sky was overcast during the recent Wolf moon. Not to worry kind readers, here is some fun stuff I did with the moon over the past year. Enjoy.
Karen and I had the great pleasure to spend a fascinating and enjoyable journey with Barry Lopez and Conger Beasley Jr. (1940-2016) in the summer of 1991 exploring and scuba diving in the Galapagos Island archipelago. We couldn't have gotten luckier if Darwin had been our guide.
Tonight we caught the remains of the Christmas star, Jupiter and Saturn departing their alignment.
A small random collection of pictures of fungi and the places they grow. The mushrooms we see are the fruiting bodies of main organism, mycelia. What a lovely way to spend a day in the forest, discovery of these beautiful species.
These photos I took in 1980 sum up 2020 well enough. Bleak with a hint of danger.
Photography has been an important part of my expression since high school.
