Happy Earth Day

Pass Mountain Overlook, Skyline Drive, Virginia ~ April 21, 2017

Seeing the challenges facing us as we strive to protect our wild places, I choose to commit my work for the betterment of our shared community. On this Earth Day, I challenge you to commit (or recommit) to honoring and protecting your small part of our world.

We only have one planet, let’s take care of it.

Photo of the Week: The Brooklyn Bridge

After a few days of showing my work around an unseasonably warm NYC, I had to walk. It had been a few years since I visited the city and I could see the changing face of development everywhere I looked. Since I had a shoot the next morning in Brooklyn Bridge Park I decided that would be my destination. By the time I arrived, it was nearing sunset and the park was alive with people moving around and photographing each other.

After walking the waterfront, I decided to take the long way home over the bridge back to Manhattan. It was dusk and there were still crowds of people using the walk/bike path but the converging lines of the bridge had my focus.

The scene was classic New York photo candy and I couldn’t help myself…

Photo of the Week: Women’s March

A lot about what I have seen over the past 2 weeks has not been normal and honestly, I’m stunned. I try not to publish my political views online or publicly for that matter. I prefer to have meaningful conversations about the issues with people face to face because I find that a whole lot more valuable – for all involved. But things are getting weird and troubling here in America. I’m not going to tell you how to think or react. I’m simply going to start by doing what I know best – sharing pictures.

On January 21st, I was in DC for the Women’s March. I took my sister and my niece for their first ever protest. I found the March to be uplifting and energizing. I’ve never seen that many people in one place exercising their first amendment rights. I’m thankful I was able witness it.

This is some of what I saw:

 

This is the lovely group of strong, kind and beautiful women I spent the day with. :)

Photo of the Week: A study in minimalism

I’m re-visiting the work I did on Ocracoke Island back in November and came across this image. The more vitriol I see on social media and in the news the more I’m drawn to images like this. Wide open, minimal, simple yet dynamic space. It’s all around us, if we pay attention.

Travel: Home for the Holidays

Going home for the holidays is always a treat, but it’s even better when you arrive to 18″ of snow. In addition to shoveling a lot of snow, our latest Maine Adventure included: snowshoeing almost everyday, witnessing the first day of ice fishing season, relaxing in an outdoor wood-fired hot tub, dining with childhood friends, finding inspiration at the Colby Art Museum and enjoying many nights sitting by the fire with family. It was a great way to reboot and prepare for all that lies ahead for us in 2017.

Happy new year, all!
