Basic Information
I am an enthusiast, seeking to grow as a photographer.  I am always open to criticism, no matter how harsh, and I usually don't hesitate to provide it as well.  ;)

My portfolio is fairly undefined after unhappy trials at smugmug and 500px (  I pretty much only regularly post everything that I share to flickr at

Keep an Eye on My Hands (Color Version)

It seems like a good idea to share the color version of this one, which I shared in B&W earlier.  They are strikingly different images that tell a completely different story.  Taipei, 2014.

I like the color version, but it emphasizes the mundane details at the cost of the people, so I think I still prefer the B&W, +Robert Mann.

I swore that I already shared this, but apparently I did not.

16th and Madison

Life goes on amidst the urban recycling.  Capitol Hill, Seattle, April, 2015.

This was an auto-pilot grab shot on my way home from work, seen in exactly this 16:9 aspect ratio.  I didn't expect much at the time, but was surprised how much it appealed to me when I looked at it in post.  I'm not sure that I saw the potential for color at the time; it was the late afternoon light that was appealing (and the dog, obviously :) ).

Obligatory Taipei Cityscape

Yes, I can occasionally take a "normal" pretty picture.

Last evening from the 38th floor lounge of the Shangri-la Hotel.  Shooting through two layers of glass with a 3-4" gap between and cutting through a bit of haze (and, of course, even with a tripod, on top of a wobbly 38 story building :) ).  This is from a single 6 second exposure and it is almost pixel sharp.

This is the last of my architectural photos from Taipei last December.  I will post the very last photo from there tomorrow.  It was a fun and rewarding trip.

Morning at the Tong Hua Night Market

In recognition of Seattle's one cold, rainy day yesterday.  It was a nice relief from our perpetual Mediterranean summer of late.
