St. Philip's Church, Charleston, S.C. ~ On a beautiful night in May, we had dinner at one of Charleston’s fine restaurants, Tristan, now closed, sadly. (Charleston is noted for being “food obsessed”, an obsession that works out particularly well for us.) Afterward, we wandered around the downtown area looking for interesting photo opportunities. Although the wind was high that night, the church stood still long enough to capture some interesti...

~ Blasted cold! I woke up this morning to single digit temperatures. The wind chill was below 0F. Now, I know that doesn't mean much to those from farther up north, but around here in North Carolina, this is rather unusual for this time of year. And it has been relentless. Although I'm quite done with winter for now, I realize it's only a matter of a few months before I'm slogging through the heat and humidity of a Carolina summer. Perhaps I'l...

I should have run a game of "provide the caption." Could get amusing.
~ Again at the Silver River in Florida. This was taken on the back side of an island that used to be a tourist attraction. Whether the boat was used for ferrying guests, or was used as a prop for greater realism, I'm not sure, but it makes for a great haven for turtles. I think that turtles make fascinating subjects. Even though they don't move very much -- which is good -- the way they huddle together on exposed logs can make for interesting...

~ After the chill of the evening wears off, a number of cold-blooded animals climb out of the water to warm themselves in the sun. Alligators tend to favor land or vegetation mats, turtles tend to climb up on logs that stick out of the water. In both cases, the chosen location is a good one in case a quick escape is needed. This little guy -- a Suwannee River Cooter, I believe -- is actually only a few inches long, perhaps 5" at most. I slowly n...

Up close with nature on the Maine coastline
~ When the weather is yucky and overcast, with no subjects of real interest in sight, it's time to get on the hands and knees and scramble over the rocks. Down near Ship Harbor and Wonderland on the "quiet side" of Mt. Desert Island, expansive slabs of rock extend into the ocean. Shallow pools filled with life are created from the receding tide, and as long as one is careful with their footing, you can get up close and personal with all manner o...

Desiring solitude is not a character flaw, as it turns out. More info on this reprocessed 2010 image and on enjoying solitude is on my blog.

~ Early one morning while camping at Dolly Copp Campground near Gorham, NH back in 2010, we were treated to a visit from a mother moose and her young one. While we were sipping coffee, the pair passed through our campsite only a few feet away from where we were sitting. The two were more interested in browsing on the late season foliage than they were with our presence. We dared not budge until they had moved along, after which we grabbed the ca...

They say fish is high in Omega 3s...
~ Ahh, sushi... It's not just for breakfast anymore. Paddling toward the headwaters of the Silver River in Florida, we passed by a small, forested island that held a large colony of Anhingas, water birds that dive underwater for their catch, which is usually fish and amphibians. Rough nests were scattered across the island, most having two or more juveniles waiting for food. Mom and dad go out to catch fish, letting them, um, settle for a while...

Acadia is the classic "target-rich environment."
~ I’ve said it before: I’m not an early morning person… usually. While in Acadia National Park last autumn, we got in the habit of waking up early — around 4:30AM — so that we could get a cup of coffee and transport down to the waterfront for sunrise shooting. During the two weeks we were there, most sunrises were rather mundane due to the clear weather, but on occasion… this. It was well worth the effort, and had the added benefit of putting u...

One of a million...
~ In the relatively small area that is Acadia National Park, beautiful scenes are everywhere. It's also one of the nation's most heavily visited parks, so people are everywhere, and most of them have cameras to capture their share of the scenery. And like most parks, there are certain areas where people are 'funneled' into one small section that reveals a highlight. Such is the case with Jordan Pond and "The Bubbles", those two small peaks acros...

... with atypical beauty.
~ There’s no place for photography quite like Maine, particularly Mt. Desert Island and Acadia National Park. There are quite a few people in the area — tourists mostly — and any number of areas that might be considered a bit bland, but around almost every bend, you might be greeted with a scene such as this one. Typical. Typical, and incredibly beautiful. If only there was a way to capture the sense of salt air; the sound of seagulls squabbli...

Story
Tagline
I'm a photographer and writer who likes to connect with friends, teach, and perhaps think a bit too much.
Introduction
Living the dream in eastern North Carolina. I'm in a wonderful relationship with my bride of 17 years. I take pictures, and try to find peace and compassion in a world gone rather nuts.

I was looking for all-weather mats for a new vehicle, and hit upon a wide array of options. I turned to CARiD customer service chat, and Anna double-checked and found just the right fit for the new ride. No doubt, this saved me troubles and headaches if I had chosen the wrong type. Very well done!
