The photo above and the photos in 2017 Solar Eclipse gallery are some of my favorite images from the eclipse. I had hoped to get close enough to the Tetons to use them in a series of images tracking the sun as it was eclipsed. That also would have put Elena and me in the path where we would have had two and a half minutes of totality. With the smoke from the wildfires, and other factors, I couldn't get the image I hoped, so I pulled out my big zoom and captured these closer images, while I also grabbed some shots to set the scene (with Elena's help) using both my D800 and my iPhone.
I was able to get a few photos on Labor Day with the first official day of Cubbing. Please check my Farmington Hunt Club page for more information.
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 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.
Remeber to follow my Facebook page or additional updates including previews of images that I add to the galleries here. See the button below.
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.
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.
