Seems most of my life I've been seeking something, most of the time it's an answer to a problem... or how to make something simpler. Over the past few years I made things like my own filter holders so that I can try different ways of manipulating light. After all, its that light I seek these days.

One-Twenty Two-Thirteen. What if I didn't show up to see you? I'm glad I did, and even more happy I brought my camera. I'm just crazy about sunsets and do my best to be at the right place... and the right time.

Strawflower No. 14. I seek out common strawflowers in the wild, not far from my home. Sometimes I shoot with a macro lens, sometimes a telephoto. What I am looking for is a particular type of glow that usually happens when sunbeams filter down through trees and onto my subjects, and I know if I get up early the sun will be at an angle I prefer. Most of the strawflowers I photograph can be found at the Santa Cruz Arboretum here in Central California. I hope you enjoy what you see here as much as I like capturing them.
