1958 Chevy…

    What can I say … it’s a classic. Though it would be considered a gas hog in today’s standards of fuel efficiency, there’s something to be said for the precision, pride and lack of “planned obsolescence”  in which cars from this era were made.

Wild Child Katydid

Have you ever seen a baby Katydid? As a mature insect, their beautiful green color and shape is interesting and appealing, but as a nymph, they are downright fascinating. Their color scheme and pattern is striking and unique. I didn’t know what I was photographing when my macro lens caught this wildly colored itsy bitsy creature […]

The Road Not Taken

  By Robert Frost    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;   Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better […]

Land of the Wind Turbines

Last week my son and I drove my daughter back to Los Angeles for another year of school at USC. Mid-way in our drive we went through a most surreal area near Palm Springs which is home to a sea of wind turbines. I’ve driven past this area numerous times, but I never get bored with […]

Land of the Lizards

It’s hot in the Sonora Desert. The daytime high’s are still hovering around 106 degrees as we near the end of August. The dogs & cats are lazing in the shade or inside their homes, birds are perched on branches with their mouths open and the lizards are scurrying around, stopping only long enough to do some […]

Saguaros and the Night Sky

A thirty second exposure and about twenty manual bursts of an off-camera flash was used to make this photo, which was created from out of the darkness of the very secluded community of Saguaro Ranch in far northwest Tucson. Beyond the glare of the city lights and traffic, this is a most peaceful place where stars shine brightly. […]

Green Lynx

This little spider is a Green Lynx (Peucetia viridans). I found him crawling around on a plant by a stream in the Santa Rita Mountains of southern Arizona. That I saw him at all is remarkable since, besides the fact that his color blends so perfectly with the plant, he is only 1/4 to 1/2 inch big!   […]
