Great Egrets love to fish and roost around Cape Ann from Spring until late fall, and I love to find and photograph them. Today I saw them for the first time this year. It was colorless this afternoon and I noticed two white spots way in the back of a marsh in Manchester. I circled…

Mother Nature Streaks Through the Sky

The imagination is a carnival of thoughts and it is funny how it can connect things. Last night was an amazing display of color as Mother Nature quietly streaked across the sky, using various marker tips and her favorite contrasting colors.

Photography

I’m a creative professional and photographer of many years. I remember my first big shoot for a college photography project, a collection of images celebrating the 200-year anniversary of Mercedes Benz, shot over 4 months with a Pentax SLR.
