A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE

I took this photo years ago while in Maine. I have kept it along with a few other special images that show up whenever I go into my photo gallery. Mostly I transfer new photos out of the gallery into storage files, and see them again only when I go searching. So, why keep this particular…

WE LIVE IN PRECARIOUS TIMES

WE LIVE IN PRECARIOUS TIMES

I decided to share this image from a series that I did a few years ago. I was doing an inventory of my portfolio and realized how apropos this piece is in our current circumstances.  Certainly, we are living in precarious times. On the edge of an abyss of fear and anxiety, we mourn the…

UNDER THE BOARDWALK

UNDER THE BOARDWALK

Here are we all, in the midst of a world of chaos. Living with the unknown, with no view of what lies ahead. Like still water our current existence reflects only what is visible in the present. However, if we look under the boardwalk, where the shadows allow us to see below the surface, we…

And I am left with only a vague memory of a thought, never…

MOONRISE

MOONRISE

Have you ever noticed the dramatic impact made by the smallest pinpoint of light when it arrives in the darkness? As a metaphor, it has been overused to illustrate all sorts of meaningful events and watershed moments. And, like words used too often the meaning has become meaningless … banal, trite, and ho-hum … a…

Psst! Did You Forget Something?

Psst! Did You Forget Something?

This morning I watched as my neighbor trailed her suitcase down the walk to her garage. Ah I thought, she is off on an adventure. Good for her! I hope it is somewhere warm. Then she stopped and looked back at her house as if to check that she had not left some stray part…

GETTING AHEAD OF MYSELF

GETTING AHEAD OF MYSELF

I’m getting ahead of myself … What an odd expression. Like it is possible to stay even, let alone get ahead of anything these days. Although I suppose it might possibly explain Deja vu … that feeling that you have been there and done that, and took a million pictures of the occasion. Deja vu…
