A Photographers Portfolio

Anyone who has ever picked-up a camera will gladly share their favorite photographs viewed from single pictures or their photo albums or even framed blowups. But now photo artists can display their work to the entire globe via the internet. Like most photographers who have invested in this art form, I literally have thousands of photographs awaiting to canvass the viewers imagination. In this grouping, I've chosen some of my favorite color photographs to exhibit with a brief explanation as to their existence.(Double-click on images to enlarge - All photos copyrighted)

Old cars, tractors, vintage motorcycles and especially abandoned trucks are favorite subjects to capture through the viewfinder. Especially if mother nature has cast her spell of beauty upon years of neglect. Here parked behind a barn at a garden nursery stood these old work horses that had come to rest.

While sipping on a glass of Cabernet with my feet propped-up on the deck, a summer sunset painted multiple colors across the evening sky. Forget about watching TV or reading the evening paper, dusk at my residence is the place to be to witness the Westerly sky.

On an Easter Sunday drive to the State Park located at The Enid Reservoir in rural Mississippi, I came upon a set of triplets in the picnic area sitting on a swing wearing their colorful Sunday School outfits. The year was 1981 and it just so happened that I had my camera in my vehicle when I asked the parents permission to photograph the trio. Immediately I began shooting when suddenly I was captured in their spell of pure innocence.

Every Winter during their Spring migration, thousands upon thousands of Snow Geese converge upon the farm lands of the Skagit Valley in Northwestern Washington. Both the entire sky and ground surface are blanketed in white by these graceful and enormous birds. Pictured in the distant background is Mount Baker standing at 10,778 feet.

I love the picture of the Snow Goose best. It is a magnificent picture.

I also like the Thanksgiving picture of African-American children. They are adorable!

A great set, would love to see the contrast and the saturation slightly increased on the car shot as well, it´s a stunner!
