Yeah, sorry. I couldn’t come up with a better title. One of the things about my photographic work is that I’m not really totally wanting to “just do photography.” In almost all of the images that I capture, I want to add something of an element of painting, or compositing, or otherwise manipulating the image….
Well, actually, there’s no such thing as old River Park in Fresno. There’s just River Park. I called it “Old” River Park because of the treatment I gave to the image — about which I’ll say more below.

When I was in high school, I was fortunate to be able to take photography at a school that had a good-sized darkroom, with areas for processing color as well as black-and-white film and prints. To this day, I still remember the acrid smell and the way everything inside the room was — when not…

“Home Alone” was followed by “Home Alone 2.” Since my last post was a play off of that movie and I wanted to post the same beautiful woman again, I’d be just as…uh…”creative” with my title.
First, apologies to the IE folks who haven’t been able to view the site. As noted elsewhere, I had to make significant code changes to the original theme. In the process, I left a “- ->” off the end of one line, which apparently confounded Internet Explorer. I’ve used Firefox for so long that I…
Once in awhile, I get a wild hair and want to test what I’m able to do. Erin’s impromptu portrait is an example.
