iPhoneography & the black and white via Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.” ~Henri Cartier-Bresson Lately, I have been pushing myself to get better at black and white photography. A good black and white photo seems a poem compared to the novellaContinue reading “iPhoneography & the black and white via Henri Cartier-Bresson”

Dunga brook Diary: A Year of Seeing Differently

April 6th at 5pm, opening reception at Cherry Branch Gallery, Cherry Valley, NY. “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.

Wednesday scene from (one dreams) the last snow of the season…

I love old barns, each one a snowflake and their elegant dissolve, slow motion as it is, is a thing of beauty to behold.

Monday night, February 18, 2013, let the waxing gibbous moon be your guide…

So, its about 11 degrees out, snow on the ground, and I come home late from the art studio and, since they’ve been in the house for hours, I let the dogs out. Chevy disappears into the night.

He has trained me to let his food run outContinue reading “White Capped Chickadee, my heart belongs to you”
