It’s freezing in the Northeast,

All I want to do is SWEAT!
All I want is Summer!

Can’t wait for summer at the beach and all those ocean waves!

Disney, Pool, Swimming, Vacation

On vacation…….

Wish I were still ON vacation….

Photographed with a Nikon.

A Man in Search of Water….

ocean, shore, elderly man, walking

….and apparently he forgot to look to his left.

Photographed with 35mm B&W film and developed and printed in my darkroom many years ago.

I wonder if the man is still looking…..

The Boy at the Beach (with his little sister).

Yesterday I posted a photograph of the boy standing alone on the beach.
I thought today I would present one more image showing his sister standing alongside him.
The photography details are the same as yesterday’s – 4×5 camera, b&w Kodak film, processing
and printing in my darkroom. Image photographed several years ago.

The Boy at the Beach

Above is an image taken several years ago with my 4×5 view camera on the beach.
I was on vacation at the time with the family.
A 4×5 camera, as everyone knows, is not exactly your typical point-and-shoot.
Luckily I have a family that is willing to wait while I say, “just one more second.”

Are you a lifeguard when there is no one to guard?


They’re casting for another superhero for the Avengers 2. Enter- Aquaboy!

(For the comic book aficionados, I know that Aquaboy would really be in the DC universe, not Marvel.)

Splish! Splash!

I made this photograph several years ago. I was shooting film and standing in the ocean watching my son being pounded by the waves. Thinking back about it now, I was standing in the ocean near him, water up to my waist and I was holding my camera and lens worth several thousand dollars. What the hell was I thinking? If I had been knocked over by a wave I would have had to go into therapy to get over it. Yikes! Sometimes I just act on impulse. Luckily I captured some great photographs.

Where is Everybody?!

2011 Calendar

Over this past weekend I started work on my 2011 calendar. I give the calendar to several clients and family and friends as a holiday gift. I was energized about working on next year’s project because a client recently asked me what the theme would be. She enjoyed this year’s calendar and was looking forward to the next one.  (The image above is from the gallery.)
