New Fire Gallery: Dance of Flames Images


…To the opening of my new online gallery featuring a series of Fire and Flame images .

Flames are the visible part of a fire, gaseous but sometimes dense enough to be considered plasma. The dance of flames is a mesmerizing sensory experience…the hypnotic movement of light and form meditative – engaging our attention to quiet the mind. It’s a fascinating photographic study that I plan to expand in the future. You can visit the Fire Gallery at:  While you’re there, check out some of my other galleries and sign up for the mailing list. As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Reflections 2016, January 1


I am kicking off the year with a bi-monthly website feature called “Reflections 2016”.  This is my version of an online sketchbook or photo journal for sharing thoughts and images that don’t necessarily fit into my current themed portfolios of ongoing work. They might be images from a photography workshop project, new ideas I am exploring, creative inspirations from books, movies, or music… or they may simply be captures of an extraordinary subject or moment that catches my eye in the course of the day.  

The theme for this first post is Self-Reflection, based on the following quote:

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
- Anais Nin

I’m sharing several Self-Portraits, including this one called “Face to Face”.

Love to have you check it out… Reflections 2016
