I wish I could say it was enlightenment, that it was an artistic revelation that drove me to it. The clean slate. The fresh start. Beginning anew… It’s 2013. I recall a time when the year 2000 seemed so far … Continue reading
Do you recall the scene? Just prior to Dorothy opening the door? Though not confirmed, this 2Guyographer may be headed Down Under in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for details and then, of course, stories and images. It’s also … Continue reading
Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people. Eleanor Roosevelt I often think of this quote. These are the words my own mother used to say to me when I was growing up. Then she would … Continue reading
Have you ever stood at a spot, looked ahead and wondered? Has the clarity of the moment been obscured by the uncertainty ahead? Have you ever tried to put into pictures what you struggle to put into words? Nikon … Continue reading
I’ve been working hard at creating HDR images that are natural, subtle… images which show the tonal variations from one end of the dynamic range scale to the other without appearing over-processed, over-cooked. I’ve suspended that quest temporarily to bring … Continue reading

A few years ago, my son and I descended toward the Colorado via the Bright Angel Trail. We spent the easiest of it, the walk down, bemoaning our misfortune for having undertaken so difficult a task. The threatening skies, the … Continue reading
Despite cold rain and strong wind, 5,000 runners competed in half and full marathons at Hampton Beach, NH, this past Sunday. We waited at the finish line and watched the determined and exhausted accomplish their goals, be that to finish … Continue reading
Taken with a Fujifilm X10. ISO 800, f5 and 32 seconds. I didn’t have a tripod, so I propped the camera down on my lens cap, on top of a bench. I waited until there was movement and snapped.

Without thinking, only feeling, I crossed this boardwalk time and time again. Mostly alone, occasionally with someone I cared enough to show. It’s been there. It will be there. I’ll cross again. But what if I don’t? What if I … Continue reading

Two generations sat and watched. Pistachio or chocolate chip, no matter. It was a perfect afternoon. Olympus EM-5. Structure and contrast boosted in HDR Efex Pro for dramatic effect.
Spotted this gentleman sitting outside Mike’s Pastry, the tasty tourist trap in Boston’s North End. His music punctured the popping night crowd, bustling through humid 90+ degree weather even though the sun had long since set. This musician is … Continue reading
