Fast Little Hummers

It’s been a little while since I’ve spent some time with the tweeties. I’ve had a couple of wonderful adventures but the wildlife were non existent in Paris and elusive and sparse in Maine. It is true that as an artist, and yes…as a photographer I can begin to call myself as a digital artist,…

My Stars in Acadia National Park

With the growth of industrialization and human population over the planet, the ability to find a dark sky is becoming even harder and harder. To think that many children are now growing up and aren’t able to see the night sky filled with stars and planets like some of us that had the privilege to…

Arc de Triomphe

The gateway to Paris’s city center is the historical monument the Arc de Triomphe. Standing strong and tall, this arched monument has honored soldiers who fought for France since the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. Commissioned by Napoleon himself in 1806 after his victory at Austerlitz, the monument was completed during the reign of King…

A Simple Sunrise

It was a long day for me yesterday when I spent the day at the National Cathedral’s annual Flowermart. It is a great event, but the weather was nothing short of foul. Cold, windy, drizzly and on and off rain throughout the entire day. Inside though, I did get to enjoy some beautiful floral arrangements…

Blue Poppies at Longwood Gardens

There are times when things just seem to fall in place. Something out of the ordinary for me this week as I helped a friend by transporting her horse up to New Bolton Vet services in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. The best part of this is that the facility is less than ten minutes away from…

My World Without Color

I love color. I really love color. The colors that the natural world brings to our lives. But for some odd reason, the concept of capturing the world in black and white has suddenly appeared. Perhaps it’s because of an addition of a new iPhone app to my phone that is to blame. Filmborn is…

Swans a Sleeping

This past weekend I conducted my first “Digital Art Class” with Capital Photography Center. The course helped guide participants in seeing photography as an artist would and how to begin the process out in the field when capturing an image. This past week I visited my favorite Tundra swan flock and noticed that there were…

Luke the Lion

Luke the Lion at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park in Washington D.C. is an icon and revered member of the zoo. In the past six years, Luke has raised two families with sisters Shera and Nababiep. I’ve enjoyed these babies and now they’ve grown and moved on to other zoos to continue the Luke’s DNA…

Swan Fight!

The day promised to be sunny and it had been a little while since I’ve visited my favorite Tundra swan flock. Lifestyles of a nature photographer, leave the house while it is still dark outside to capture the sunrise. When arriving at the community park on the Magothy River, not a single swan was in…

They Call Me Mellow Yellow

Spring is nearly here and the tulips are starting to appear in the store. The creative part of my brain has been active lately so I picked up these charming yellow tulips to not only enjoy but to also play with. Setting these onto my newly acquired Lightpad by Artograph¬†I¬†selected three of them and laid…
