Paris in 5 1/2 Weeks : Around Notre Dame – Day 3, via Felipe Adan Lerma

My wife Sheila and I, even back in the autumn of 2012, were of course aware of then learned much more of the incredible history of Paris and it’s iconic areas inside the old city walls. We learned that a previous church had occupied the same spot on the island on the Seine as Notre […]

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. The answer […]

Thank You Repeat Buyer in Bradford Vermont (Nancy Griswold)! – Mountain Road Cabin And Sunrise, Stowe Vermont

Normally most artists selling their art work, prints, and gift items don’t know who’s bought something of theirs at Fine Art America, but this particular buyer, artist Nancy Griswold, contacted me and let me know.

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

From early on I included my own images in small books of poetry, creating verses to illustrate what I saw and felt in the scenes, often of nature but relating to people. Also relatively early, I matched images to my travel memoirs. One small book, “Love’s Travels – Vermont, Paris, Austin”, combines my images with […]

Happy New Year Everyone! This is the 5th image in my Mount Mansfield September Sunrise photo shoot one morning, September, 2018.

Mount Mansfield September Sunrise Four

Dec 29, 2018 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 […]

Mount Mansfield, My Favorite Sunrise Photo Shoot Series of 2018 – Image Three

Dec 28, 2018 Though only a few minutes have passed from my previous pic (Image Two, link at bottom of this post), already there’s small changes. As I wrote in my image description on my image site at Fine Art America – “only a few minutes more have passed, but already patches of fog in […]
