Cold Steady Rain

Open Water

      With relatively warm temperatures (34 degrees) and mostly open water we spent the morning enjoying being outside and on the water.  The only downside was cold fingers and putting on and taking off a gazillion layers of winter kayaking gear.

Oil and Water

'I watch the ripples change their size, But never leave the stream of warm impermanence, and so the days float through my eyes.' ~  "Changes", David Bowie

I was making dinner.  The shapes and colors of the oils in the boiling water were especially interesting the way they slowly swirled and changed or exploded with activity with contact.  Dinner had to wait.  I played with the oils and light but finally decided I needed some different equipment.  Late dinner, but this crazy form of entertainment was better than a movie.

Key West Feral Chickens and Mile '0'

Our recent trip to the Florida Keys proved to be another fine adventure with friends.  Paddling from Spanish Harbor to Zachary Taylor State Park we encountered clear blue-green water, dolphin, sharks, rays, sea stars, Portuguese Man O'War, sea turtles, strange marine creatures, sea birds, as well as the controversial feral Key West Chicken.

Funny Faces


Over the years I've had the privilege of photographing many animals in their natural environment as well as animals at work.  I've enjoyed their funny expressions and antics and look forward to the opportunity to spend more time observing and photographing them.
