My Shadow-Selfie Feels Part of the World (smiles)

Most of my self portraits show me taking pictures or playing with one of my grandkids, or at a gallery show or enjoying a vista in Vermont and elsewhere. This image – taken on a walk through the neighborhood – caught my attention as I was crossing the street. The deep shadow, outlined yet moving […]

Do You Have a Favorite Word Among Your Image Titles? Apparently I do! (smiles) – “Light”

My newest Fine Art America photography and art collection – “Light” I was recently debating the title for a new nearly finished oil painting – I pretty sure I’ve settled on “Woman in Moonlight” – when I suddenly wondered how much of my photography and art I’ve titled with “Light” in the title.

About the Images in My Books, Part 2 – Narrative / Illustrative Photography and Art

Mount Mansfield September Sunrise Five

Happy New Year Everyone! This is the 5th image in my Mount Mansfield September Sunrise photo shoot one morning, September, 2018. It is the first of the series with the sun actually showing.

Mount Mansfield September Sunrise Four

This is the moment before the sun shows itself. More light reflects orange on the fog. Foreground fields appear. Astronomical twilight is a recorded memory. Nautical twilight’s eyes are wide open. And Civil Twilight will soon evaporate into pure light. By this time, with the light rising so quickly, my own sense of time has […]
