Gardener, writer, artist and photographer one of which can not exist without the other. There is beauty in the world around us if only we take the time to search it out. That which has beauty is not always immediately visible to those in a hurry to get where they are going...but they often do not even know where they are going....so they miss not only the beauty along the way but also the final destination.
Through my photos you can meander through life and see the small delights that I find every day as I work in my garden, hike in the fields or simply lie back and watch the clouds in the sky and listen to the babble of a brook.
My home is in Northern California. In addition to my garden I have a wealth of photo opportunities at every turn of the back roads and even small city thoroughfares. I look at all of these opportunities with an artists eye and find my camera can give me the instant gratification that I could not achieve with pen, pencil or brush. There are so many images in life that I want to capture and the digital camera has finally empowered me to capture a large number of them.
