In 1999, I started a
project which has fascinated me since and will probably be a life
work. While most people think
of the Rocky Mountains as being Colorado, I began photographing the
Eastern Plains of Colorado for the rugged and simple beauty
that I found there. In recent years, I have expanded my work
into neighboring states which contain a part of the Great Plains as
Included here are some of the images which will be in my
upcoming book: "In Plains Sight".
In January of 2002,
just after our country's 9/11/01 experience, I traveled to Paris,
France. While there I visited the Pere Lachaise Cemetery and I
was taken with the faces of the statuary, bas reliefs and the
ironwork. The result was a series of photographs which
powerfully portray the humanity of this place and which are the
basis of my book: "Eternal Companions".
A new national park was created in
Colorado in 2004 which includes one of our country's true natural
wonders, the Great Sand Dunes. These dunes, far from any
ocean, are the highest in North America. I have visited
a few times to photograph - I plan to visit more in the future.
This pre-Civil War
fort was built at the entrance to San Francisco harbor to protect
the city against attack from the sea. However, before it was
even completed it was made obsolete by new ship borne armament and
abandoned. Today, it sits directly under the south end of the
Golden Gate bridge in a partially restored state. I have found
beauty within its brick walls and have been photographing there from
the late 1970's.
Colorado is my
adopted home and the entire Southwestern United States is a wondrous
place full of rich visual images which I have been privileged to
photograph over my 33+ years here. In this gallery, you will
see images from throughout this region - from the mountain forests to
the desert dunes.
This gallery consists
of a group of photographs which do not fit into a specific project
category. Enjoy the variety.
Note: Images on
this site have been purposely provided at a reduced
resolution to protect them from full size reproduction. They are intended to
give you an idea of how they will look, in-person, while viewing
my archival prints - as I intend them to be seen.
