...Welcome to my site!

I hope you enjoy  exploring  here.    Relax....take your time......lots to see.

Click on 'galleries' in the menu bar above to see photos arranged into groups.

Choose your interest or category.  'Portfolio' are my own favorites.  Clicking on a photo enlarges it  for a much better view and will  give  more info.

The site will  view easily on any mobile device but best views are on a wide screen monitor.

If you'd like more information or start a conversation about photography, use my contact information in the menu bar.  Will be happy to hear from a visitor.

The news:

I have posted a new photo essay,  "April 2017 in Eastern, NC"  Find it in the gallery tab above.  While traveling up to Ocracoke, I found myself avoiding 'tourist' shots on the way and got home with a good collection of rural, coastal, scenic shots including a number of indigenous local built work boats.   My one nod to the tourist shot is the iconic Ocracoke Lighthouse from 1893.

"Sailing"  has a well  developed pic of a Herreschoff 14 (same as Buzzard's Bay 12.5) and "All the rest" has a new photo of "Fontana Lodge"

All of the photos are free to view but not to download.  If you would like a print or digital copy you may choose the buy option on any photo or gallery.

Thank you for visiting.
