I'm testing. Video after the break, enjoy
We lost our dear friend and my wife's mother Bonnie McKissick.
She's off to her next journey.
Thank you Bonnie for all the love and good times we shared.
Minus tides are amazing times to explore the northern Oregon coast.
In April I discovered my little follie of a nest had been taken over by a couple of American robins (Turdus migratorius). The original nest was a wire basket I'd made with a cue ball left over from the old studio billiard table. It's in a low boxwood, pruned to emulate a tree I remember from Dr. Seuss books my little brothers read.
Here is the journey in pictures. Starting with the first egg, then two and then four, back to two (not clear on what happened to missing eggs) continuing through just before they fledged the nest.
My imagination is having great fun imagining new life into old images. I've been busily digitizing many old negatives. Images I'd never gotten the chance to print, proof or enjoy as a full time printmaker, paper maker and collaborator with artists. Blending old and new, what a great way to explore the power of computer editing.
Enjoy the ride. I certainly am, and allergies be damned.
Photography has been an important part of my expression since high school.
