ABSTRACTSNATURENEW WORKTRAVELWETLANDSINDUSTRIAL

My photographic interests vary according to whim and availability.

Until September 2016, I considered myself a landscape photographer. For years, I had photographed two northern California wetlands restoration sites, Cullinan Ranch and Guadalcanal Village. Discovering Archaea, one of the earth’s oldest life forms, formerly found on Cullinan Ranch, was a thrill (it has a separate page on this website due to its unique subject). However, its destruction in September 2016 disheartened me. The National Wildlife Refuge had it bulldozed and inundated in the name of “restoration.” The wetland area is both less diverse and less interesting for it.

Quite by chance, however, I discovered acres of beautiful, rusted and coated industrial beams and tubes on Mare Island. Some of the photos are on the Industrial page. There’s a lot of potential in industrial sites.

So, now I shoot wetlands and other Nature scenes, including, most recently, birds.  Travel photos attempt to show what some of my trips were like. I change the photos on the New Work page frequently to show my most recent photos.

I post a photo to FaceBook every morning.  Although sometimes the photos wind up on this website the daily postings show most immediately what I’m working on, whether it’s scanning old photos or adding new ones. My sole criteria for posting them on FB is that I like them. If you would like to see my FB postings, please send me a “Friend” request (only “friends” can see my FB page).
