Hi, my name is…


No doubt, the best thing about being out and about with your camera and no expectations are the kind strangers you meet.

This is why I live in Florida! Beautiful weather for a January hike with the dogs on the Florida trail.


Friday Night Light

Port St. Joe Treasure

Night Bikes

Two favorite shots from the Night Photography class I just finished teaching at CityArts Cooperative. Guess I love the bicycle shape!

Had fun this weekend “painting with light” in my backyard! More experimenting to come in the next few weeks as I start teaching a Night Photography class at CityArts Cooperative.

What’s for Dinner

I encountered Charlie walking downtown with a camouflage wrapped bundle on his shoulder. I asked what was inside and he began unpacking a pile of scorpion fish and tuna.  He had just returned from days out in the Gulf and he was walking homeward with his share of extras, and some dinner rolls.

What fun! Digital Graffiti, a projection art festival at Alys Beach. Watching visitors wander through the narrow streets in the dark, interact, and become part of the art (intentionally and unintentionally) makes this really fantastic.

Always refreshing to shoot in black and white – so easy on the eyes! Here are a few from my Florida Panhandle wanderings in the last few months.

Florida Trail in Fall

















And a good time was had by all on this beautiful section of the Florida Trail that runs beside Econfina Creek. Especially this young pup Sayde who ran the whole way, back and forth, at least 16 miles.
