As you can see by the image above and a few others I added to the New and D.C. galleries, I tried to get some new fireworks photos last night. Unfortunately, with the clouds and the wind blowing from the east, the fireworks themselves were mostly invisible from my vantage point. Perhaps next year I will try this location again.

Lee Graham parents who didn't order a team photo in advance, can still get a copy. Please go to the Swim or Dive team picture day galleries and use my online shopping cart.

Lee Graham parents and swimmers can also login to see the photos from the first four A meets, Divisional Relay Carnival, the Swim Team Picture Day and the Belly Flop Contest / Fun Friday.

One final note for Lee Graham parents. If you now would like to get a portrait of your swimmer or diver and missed the Pictures days and the various makeup times, please contact me to see if we can find a time before the end of the season.

The lilies are in bloom. I've added some addtional photos to the Flowers gallery. I hope that you enjoy them.

When taking pictures of some of the new pieces I had framed for the "blooms & moons" show, I decided to redo the Framed Prints gallery, and then I realized I have far more framed prints than wall space. Check back soon for details of an upcoming Framed Print sale.

I have added a limited search capability to the gallery pages. You can now filter the images in a gallery by how I have rated the photos, if you want to see which ones I think are the best, and you can search for keywords if, for example you just want to see my rose photos without looking at the other flower images. Please let me know what you think of this change or other suggested improvements.

I will be going through the other galleries and adding keywords to those galleries soon.

Once again, thank you to everyone who stopped by Art & Frame of Falls Church for my solo show "blooms & moons" back on the April First Friday, and a special thank you to those who purchased prints during the show. The framed prints are now back here, but I have a print bin with other flower and moon images as well as a card spinner with cards from the show and also in the same theme.

I added some new pictures from a hike up the South Fork of Moormans fire road the last weekend in the New Images gallery. I also added some different looks at a bearded iris flower both outdoors and "in the studio".

I added a new Rivers & Streams gallery where I have collected some of my photos where a river or stream is a principal part of the composition. I will add some more images to that gallery soon.

If you are looking for the Falls Church street signs collage that was in the Falls Church Arts All Member show, you can see a copy in the New Images gallery.

Photos from the 6a Northern Region Swim Championships Girls' Prelims and the Saturday Finals are posted.

Sorry that I don't have photos from the 6a State Championships. Elena wasn't able to swim, so I stayed home to make sure she was okay.

Swim Photos

I have enjoyed taking photos at the indoor swim meets over the years, but now that Elena is through with High School swimming and moving on, I probably won't be taking photos during High School or USS meets in the future. I will leave the photos that I have taken up on this web site for a while, and I will be happy to sell you prints or electronic copies.

If you are looking for the photos I have taken at some of the High School swim meets, you can try the Gallery Search to find the gallery. Contact me if you need the gallery password.

If you are a Mako Parent and don't have access to the Mako Photo Galleries here on my web site, please send me an email.

If you are not a Mako Parent and think that I have pictures of your swimmer or swimmers and would like to see the photos, please send me an email. If I have pictures of your swimmers in action, I will create a private gallery for you if I have several images, or I will send you copies if I only have one or two images. Please send me an email if I have previously created a gallery for you, but you need your login information.

I need a $20.00 deposit before I create your private gallery. If you don't like the photos, I will refund $10.00 of your deposit. If you purchase photos, I will apply the deposit towards your purchase.
