"Timeless Speed and Curves"...

The beautiful, sexy, fun curves of the Porsche 550 Spyder. Even though this may be a replica, it doesn't negate the inviting curves this design tempts you with. You know you want to jump into this seat and take it for a spin!

"Legacy of Rural Barns"...

Often I have the opportunity to photograph the homesteads, garages and barns of relatives. This is one of those garages. If you take a moment to appreciate the story each item could tell, each has quite a story. Just a quick glance you'll see items such as: true gas can (not plastic!), fan shield, many license plates from the early and mid-1900's, mailbox, many axe and broom handles, Coca-Cola and "Pop Kola" bottles, pry bars and much more.
What are current generations doing to preserve these stories? Are they keeping these tangibles? Are they capturing good photographs? Are their stories being lost?

"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.
