"Stream of Dreams"...


This location had a sense of spirit, atmosphere and dreams. To capture it all in one frame was a challenge. Dreams don't always happen when our eyes are closed. Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome.

Time Flies...


A dragonfly caught in flight over water. Why is it that water is so calming and seems to allow time to stand still? The still of this action photo, along with the composition, begs longer study.

"Mystery in High Contrast"...


I found the juxtaposition of these Porsches facing opposite directions interesting, as well as the opposing colors. The exhaust from the cold morning adds interest to the mood,. Overall, the lighting suggests it could be day or night.

"1974 911 in pencil"...


Here you can see the beautiful lines of the classic 911 in a black-and-white, pencil rendering. Still looks fast today. Simple is often better.

"Bloom Where You Are"...


Regardless how great or small, there are opportunities to bloom where you are. You don't have to face the same direction, listen to the same tune, nor follow the same path. Keep an open mind and heart.
Comments welcome.
