The Sand and the Surf

We managed to get out to the coast for a few days of rest and relaxation. I've wanted to visit Santa Cruz in the fall, to go to the beach when the crowds aren't there, for quite a few years now. We celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary, and my fifty-first birthday is coming up, so... Continue Reading →

The Photographers: Ansel Adams

The featured image has been dubbed "Moonrise, Hernandez" and was taken by Ansel Adams in Hernandez, New Mexico, on November 1, 1941. Ansel Adams is a photographer that I'm just beginning to learn about, though I am somewhat familiar with a few of his more famous photographs, like "Moonrise." It is a stunning image, one...

Mississippi Plow Generations

Among the old family slides, was this image of one of my great-great uncles, also known as my great-grandmother's brother, with a very old plow, and I don't know about the horse. This is the branch of family tree descended directly from Ireland, from a young man age thirteen, traveling alone, who arrived in New... Continue Reading →

These photos were taken in the afternoon. Though we were many miles away from... Continue Reading →

Though there are many pictures that are of interest to me, personally, every now and then there's a gem in the mix that's just some cool scenery or timecapsule, old cars on the road in their time, and so on. I think these are interesting. The featured/cover photo was... Continue Reading →

Instagram

I had bailed out on all social media for a while. I needed to reevaluate some things and take a minute. Creatively speaking it can be draining to be putting a lot of content out there, I needed to find my equilibrium with replenishing my well, so to speak. I love taking pictures. I missed...

Autumnal Equinox

The City, the weather turning now. The Harvest Moons rising high against the edge of the water. Boats rocking against the piers. Tankers and cargo ships anchored in the bay, the waves pushing against the locks. Giant glowing balloons beckoning the bounty of Autumn shorn from the surface of the plentiful terrain, loaded into the... Continue Reading →
