Before moving to the Northwest, I had many opportunities to photograph in Asia, Europe and Mexico, as well as in my long-term home state of New Mexico. I work in all camera formats, but favor infrared and high-speed B&W films for interpretive images.  Nearly everything displayed here is based on printing in my own darkroom.

Please Browse the site using the button to the left. My work is organized as Landscapes, Motorcycles, and various side projects - Waterfalls, Ghost Towns, you name it. Most of my new work in 2017 was in the Waterfalls and Ghost Town areas, but I tried to be open to all opportunities.

Today's featured image arose from a self-challenge to find images at an arbitrary stopping point on a long trail. This is a trail that is always pleasant, but never particularly photogenic. Exactly half-way around a 2 hour loop I had to select some subject. It turned out to be a fun exercise. This version is with the 20mm lens and TriX film.
