On Peonies — 100mm | f/3.5 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/800 Abundant spring rain paired with seasonably cool conditions gave us things to gripe about and a quality spring bloom. I’ve been slacking with posting them, but I have made some photographs as the flowers about my yard come and go. As far as favorites go, peonies are up there. Probably top five. Their pink blossom is about as ephemeral as they come; felling themselves by any combination of weight, weather, or a Planck length of time. Nevertheless it’s a stunner. Much like its partner in pink, the cherry blossom, its blooming met with such anticip ..read more

Make It Home — 100mm | f/3.5 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/80 Seldom seen stirrings have set about my abode. Flowers are blooming amidst a rejuvenated yard; and indoors, far strangers things are afoot. An inspired streak of home making has left behind a proper office. No more work from home days set upon a wooden kitchen chair, flanked by hoarded boxes and a litter box. No more. Now I’ve a proper space, replete with curated wall art, solid lighting, a growing brood of house plants, a proper office chair, and a rug that really ties the room together. Driving it all is the record player and fretless bass se ..read more

Hi, Biscus — 100mm | ISO 100 | f/3.5 | EXP 1/200 Hi, Biscus — 100mm | ISO 100 | f/3.5 | EXP 1/200 Hi, Biscus — 100mm | ISO 100 | f/3.5 | EXP 1/200 It is 31 December and I am out of days. It looks like this will be the last backlog photograph I get to post in 2023. So let’s roll back to 5 September and my backyard hibiscus. Not a ton of floral macro work this year, so it feels good to close out the year with this low key, cross process shot. 2024 is mere hours away. Let’s get after it. Be excellent to each other.

Time Marches On — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/4 sec Time Marches On — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/4 sec Time Marches On — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/4 sec 2024 coming in hot! At this point years flip about as fast as single pages on a tear away calendar. It’s a gift to grow old. An opportunity to experience the relativity of time mounting years speed ever swifter. Continuing my quest to rip through my 2023 backlog. I made this photograph at Dock Road on 30 November 2023. Happy to have another motion blur shot. I’m developing quite a gallery in this style, and it is a trend I will conti ..read more

Path of Gold — 35mm | f/1.8 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/80 All my years making photographs in southern Ocean County, and I never before tread at Cloverdale Farm County Park. All this time a wonderful bit of landscape has sat in wooded hiding mere miles from my home. I had no idea. The park itself is an old cranberry bog, and it features wooded trails, duck blinds, and numerous shallow pools full of bramble and sedge. I wish I had this in my spot rotation years ago. Here we have another blurry pan shot photograph. Only this time the camera motion is top to bottom vertical, instead of left to right horizo ..read more

The Morning Look — 35mm | f/5.6 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/30 In my last post I talked fishing. Fishing and photos. Here I offer another sunrise photograph made on 12 November 2023. A simple left to right pan shot to pull the colors across the frame. And what wonderful dawn colors were pulled that day. For a few years now I have been near all in on panning my landscape frames. And if anything, its personal appeal only grows with time. I often think of ways to articulate my fondness but stumble with awkward, poorly expressed thoughts. An art critic I am not. That said, I’ll stick to basics. First is col ..read more

Fish On

Fish On — 35mm | f/5.6 | ISO 100 | EXP 1/15 sec The mid-Atlantic fall run has brought big smiles and tight lines to striped bass enthusiasts up and down the New Jersey coast. Whether by boat or by surf, the 2023 fall bite has been certifiable. So far this season I have made it out thrice—once by boat, and twice by Ship Bottom surf. Naturally I have zero fish to show for it. My cousin, however, photographed here, had himself a banner day by center console. Too bad I was not there with my camera. One thing we did catch, however, cold hands aside, was a fantastic 12 November sunrise. During a bri ..read more

On the Fringe — 14mm | f/8 | ISO 100 | 7 Bracketed Exposures Socked in on a Saturday. 23 September 2023 at 3:30 p.m. EDT, Tropical Storm Ophelia dumps heavy rains across the mid-Atlantic buffeting southern Ocean County, NJ, with steady winds. I’m hoping my LBI friends are managing the storm surge. As for me, I sit comfortably at my large oaken desk watching this week’s Nintendo Voice Chat on YouTube while typing to you, Internet friends. This here sunset photo looks back to Thursday when the outer fringes of Ophelia first spun up high level cirrus clouds over the region. This high cloud deck b ..read more
