Boston, 1989

One of these days I will get the Art section of this website straightened out.  If you go there now, you’ll find a lot of photographs, but several of them when clicked on expand to huge size and you only see a corner of the image.  I found that if you click on that again, it reduces to screen size.  Still, it’s a bit of a pain.

Meantime, I can always post an image here now and then, and for no other reason than I like to.  Like this one, taken in Boston circa 1989.


I’m proud of my photography.  Quietly, almost too shyly.  I love the medium, always have, and some time in my childhood I became acquainted with the work of Ansel Adams.  The older I get the more I appreciate his artistry and I doubt I’ll ever match it.  But I’ve done a few pieces that I think are not too bad.

I had my first gallery show in July.  The reception evening was a surprise.  The place was never empty, and most of the people who came through I did not know.  I felt very pleased.  We didn’t sell anything, but I hadn’t expected to.  Now that the bubble is burst, though, I may try to do that again.

I’ve been taking photographs actively since I was 15.  That’s nearly 40 years now and I have tens of thousands of negatives.  The technology has changed and the industry is digital and I need to crack the books and learn it.  I’ve been dipping a toe in the (non) waters of digital imagery, hence the photographs posted here and on Facebook.  I have a lot to learn and I should get on with it before I run out of either time or interest.  But even if I don’t, I can still put a few up here for wandering visitors to enjoy.
