Like a Walk in the Park

Last month I mentioned that I was hoping to get my groove back with this new Spring season, and I’m happy to say that the groove is kind of on, in my garden and in my life.  In my garden beds, I planted the sugar snap peas, radishes, arugula and

A Technicolor World

The show is almost done for the season, but the Ohio trees have given a stunning performance to end the year. I was pretty busy the last couple months and wasn’t able to get out too much, but recently I’ve been able to sneak out a couple times to work

Flowers and Hidden Frogs

A couple weeks ago, during a gloriously, warm October day I ventured out to get some pictures of the last fall flowers. For Columbus, Ohio locals, Inniswood Park is always my “go-to” flower park when I’m gettin’ the feelin’ for nature shots. That day, I got some other friends within

Depth of Field: MetroParks at the MAC

I had no idea that last June, when I took a serendipitous drive to a park to take some shots of the sunset, that it would change the course of my work this year. On a whim I submitted this photograph to a juried exhibition late last year and this

Blackhand Gorge

I specifically drove 45 minutes to find an old tunnel at a park called Blackhand Gorge – a tunnel made in the early 20th century to be used for an interurban electric train connecting residents between Granville and Zanesville, Ohio. After 3 hours of walking through the trail, we didn’t
