Great News!

The Sun Magazine chose to publish one of my favorite photos! It’s on the inside back cover so lots of folks are going to see that. I’m so excited to have such an awesome magazine choose to use one of my photos! I started subscribing to them and decided to try to submit some photos after a friend pushed me to do so. I’m grateful for supportive friends!

I love the Sun Magazine! I hope you’ll subscribe to it as I have. It’s filled with great Essays, Interviews, Short Stories, Poetry, a beautiful letters to the editor section and of course, top quality black and white photography. NO ADS! Their description for themselves says:

Personal. Political. Provocative. Ad-free.

In each issue of The Sun you’ll find some of the most radically intimate and socially conscious writing being published today. In an age of media conglomerates, we’re something of an oddity: an ad-free, independent, reader-supported magazine.

Call them at 888-732-6736 to subscribe!

I’ll be back with more photos and thoughts in the future as I’ve just retired from my State job and have some more time on my hands….

If you’re interested in a print of this, or some of my other photos, check out my Fine Art America site!

As I was saying…

The fourth of July 2019 at a scene I’ve shot many times and moods. This feels like a hot summer day on the Delaware Bay at Port Mahon. If you’re familiar with the location, you know the smell of dead horseshoe crabs, marsh and salt water, the buzz of various sky demons from hell (biting flies of the most aggressive sort) and the sound of the gulls squawking as they wheel in the air.

Clouds aren’t Always a bad thing

Day 25 of the 30 Day Challenge

While we waited for a few hours to get into Versailles last April, the weather was going through a few changes. It went from bright and sunny, to misty with wind, then backed off a bit and finally gray and almost raining while we were in the Gardens. Lots of folks think blue skies make the best photos, but I prefer high, poofy, white clouds in the background to have some visual interest.
