On Long Beach

"On Long Beach" was taken at Long Beach, Washington. I've returned many times during the short time I've been on Long Beach Peninsula and find different moods according to the tide, time of day and atmosphere, all of which merge in unpredictable ways.

Fest Prep

The Washington State International Kite Festival takes place in Long Beach, WA from August 18-24. Festival preparations are already starting to show up (image taken August 15) including a tent anchored by heavy cement blocks to withstand strong winds. When the festival begins, this tent will have side flaps and there will be throngs of people milling about as well as kites in every direction. That said, I am having fun exploring the fringes before the festival begins.

Period Wedding

I came across a wedding photo shoot in period costume at Historic Jacksonville, Oregon. While the photographer was focusing on the bride and one of the best men on the right, the groom on the left was biding his time.

Paws and Boot

Photographer and friend, Julie Bonney, invited a few of us to photograph at her shoemaking school in Ashland, OR, where we had many subjects to work with. I hadn't expected to be juxtaposing her pug with a mini boot.

Pickleball Prowess

I competed in pickleball at The State Games of Oregon last weekend. Much of the fun was observing some of the best pickleball players in the country including Chris Miller (above) whose speed and deft footwork were impressive.

Barn Gathering

When I pass The Billings Farm on the north end of Ashland I often feel a sense of nostalgia and joy. It's obvious that Mary James loves and respects her animals.

Court Presence II

As many of you who have been following my work over the years know, I love to photograph courts and playing fields when there is no action going on. The process of drying always adds an element of design. Its quickly changing nature never fails to captivate me.
