I have uploaded several hundred more photos, but not on this website. In addition to this website, I am also using Zenfolio and Cafepress to showcase my work. Please go to Zenfolio where I have the galleries divided by country:

As usual, I've been taking way more photos than I've had time to work on and get put on the website. However, after several trips to Lagos, Nigeria over the past few months, I do want to add this one new gallery: Faces of Lagos. While in Lagos, I've made a few visits to a small "fishing village" type community of people who live and fish from under one of the main bridges that connect Lagos Island with the mainland. Though extremely poor, these people have adapted to their surroundings and are making due, trying to eke out a living by fishing. You'll notice a wide range of expressions - from happiness to hopeless resignation. I saw dignity, but also despair. Of course these are my definitions from the perspective of a (relatively) rich American. They may see things differently. You may also.

Over 3 months have passed since I updated the website. That doesn't mean I haven't been taking any pictures! On the contrary, I've had lots of neat trips (including one with the family to Peru) with tons of new photos. I just haven't made the time to get them on the website yet. That will be soon I hope! In the mean time, if you happen to live in the Fayette County area, please stop by and visit me at my booth at the Shakerag Festival on September 20 and 21.

I have uploaded several more posts to my blog, with help from my son Andrew! Read about my hike in Guatemala to an erupting volcano, and before that getting an insider's view on Switzerland's Emmental region, both at:

At the suggestion of my kids and others, I am attempting to start a blog. It won't be anything too profound, just some thoughts and comments about a particular trip I took, along with a few photos of course to help tell the story! You can check it out at

This update took a bit longer than I had hoped for. We were very busy over the new year with family trips to New York City, Missouri, and Florida. However, we've done a lot of work and there are lots of new photos on the website now. The new sections of photography that we've added are: Barns, Churches, Cows, Horses, Mailboxes, Musings, Prague, Utah.

There is so much more I want to do, and will work on as time allows. Some ideas are: Links - for some of the resources I use when planning trips or links to other artists sites, The Story Behind the Photo - every photo has a story behind it, and Blogs - interesting stories from some of my past trips.

As always, thanks for your continued interest and please stop by and say Hi! at my next photography show - The Cotton Pickin' Fair, the 1st weekend in May, at Gay, Georgia.

Technical notes from Andrew: More updates have been made to the backend of the site! We have switched from static html pages to a website based on PHP and MySQL, which affords us more flexibility in maintaining and updating the site. This update has taken a long time, since all the webpages had to be rewritten in a new language. In the future, adding new sections and photos will be much easier than even before, so we are very excited about that!

The month of November brings another update to! We have added a new gallery, Guatemala, of my recent trip to this Central American country.

The change signals another update to the backend of the site, and we are now able to update more often and with less effort. You will notice the new watermark on the images in the Guatemalan gallery, added automatically to the photographs with a script. Also, the full resolution images are now also resized automatically for the thumbnail and expanded sizes. These changes will be phased in to all images on the site over the next several updates, and help reduce the delay in making photos available here!

Featured Artist!
I'll be the featured artist for the month of October at the Bradley Street Gallery in Carrollton, Georgia. Please stop by October 12th, 6pm-8pm for the open house or any time in October to see my work. I have about 30 pieces on display there.

Andrew has been busy at college, so I apologize for the delays in the updating of my web site. We have added one new gallery, Moldova which highlights the two and a half weeks Andrew and I spent in that country on a missions trip in July, 2007. I have decided to leave all of this work in one gallery under the title Moldova because I feel that is the best way to capture this unique country in Eastern Europe.

Mar 3, 2007
Several photos have been added to each gallery. We've also added two entirely new galleries, Black and White and From the Air.

Dec 25, 2006
We added a new section to the website, an Artist's Statement page. It appears in the navigation bar to the left.

This website is a constant work in progress! I take the photos, and my son Andrew (18) does the computer work.
