Minimalizing

I just spent about a week and a half in the Palouse Hills of Washington.  If you are a photographer and haven’t been there – ummmmmmm – go!  Hills just don’t roll like that anywhere else.  In June you have the greens, in October, the harvest and the golds.  I haven’t been there in the…

Hunting for Wildlife

Yesterday, I got up super early and headed out to a place where I was guaranteed (by my motel owner) to find Big Horn Sheep.  It was a dirt road off a dirt road off a dirt road, each one getting successively harder to travel.  Bob has 4-wheel drive and there’s no road I won’t…

Lost in Oregon

I have these maps…… some of you have seen them.  They are plastic road maps of the United States. I mark every road I drive and photograph.  My goal is to drive and photograph every road in the United States.  No, I don’t really think I can do that, but trying sure is fun!! When…

Talking to Clowns

It’s great to be back in touch with Stinky Pete the Clown and Kat the Sword Sallower. I got a hold of them so I could send them an American Carnival book. Having them in the book makes the experience of being at the fair so much better.  So much more personal and somehow real. …

Blogging

I’m new at this blogging thing, but I’m a good talker…… so…… I guess I’ll just talk here. I hope you’ll talk to me too. Your input is important to me. I have always loved to travel and photograph by myself. I publish because I like to share what I see. I lead workshops for…

What’s a gray road?

Yellowstone Country is the first in a series of books of photographs taken all over the United States. They are not meant to be an exhaustive collection of photographs from each region. They are more a collection of places and things I see as I drive along. I travel 50,000 miles or so every year…
