Thank you for taking the time to check out my little photography site. I have been a photographer for years, but now I find myself working in a library. It sounds strange, yes, but what I am doing is helping create digital archives. Makes more sense now. Right? On this site I'll share with you images, and stories about the people, places and memories that go along with these images. I hope you enjoy the time you spend here.


I'm ready for my close-up.

It should come as no surprise to you now when I say, I love my little dog. Her face worked it's way into my heart from the moment I first saw her in a somewhat blurry photo emailed to me by my aunt at the animal shelter. In last two (plus) years she and I have got to know each other better and I have to come to determine that we are a perfect fit.

In the very beginning I realized that Bianka was of all things camera-shy. She'd often run away when I tried to snap her photo. I guess she's gotten used to me having a camera pressed to my face a good bit of the time, and now believe it or not, she's a ham.

At Christmas I did some impromptu family portraits, and in the middle of all the confusion was little Miss Bianka, quietly posed at the foot of every family grouping.

Then last week a good friend of mine came to visit and she agreed to let me do some photos of her to try out some new equipment. Guess who had to be right in the thick of things? Yes, Little Miss Binx. She started off observing from the stairs, but eventually she found her way to the middle of the action and by the end she practically demanded some time of her own in front of the camera.
(patiently waiting)

Eventually, I gave in. I mean how can you say "no" to this face?

She's a great little model. Don't be surprised if you see more test shots done with her.

Like I said a camera-loving dog, photographer owner... a perfect match.

These next three are actually the same image processed different ways. I can't decide which one I like the best.

This one is straight out of the camera with no adjustment.

I think this one needs the caption...Snakes Beware.

And, I'm leaning toward this one as my favorite. It seems a little softer than the rest. I don't know. Tell me what you think.
