"Homemade Instruments"...

Paul V. loves working with his hands. He makes a variety of instruments including guitars, fiddles, banjos and more. He's always working on "projects". I asked if he could play something and he replied, "Well, okay but I'm not as good as I used to be."

This is from a series of portraits I took of him. Comments welcome.

"Upper Atmosphere"...

Atmosphere is defined as a particular environment or surrounding influence. This upper atmosphere view above a valley in the wilderness of Arkansas is not as it may seem. This is actually a detail view of water flowing in a stream over a mossy bed of rock. What we creatively see as clouds in this environment, in essence are aquatic clouds for the microorganisms that live amidst this green, mossy forest floor. There is more to life than what appears on the surface.
