November 6, 2020 — Point Reyes National Seashore, California

Still absent from regular appearances in the blogosphere but I wanted to let you know that I’m still alive. Here’s a hint as to what I’ve been up to. A work in progress, but I’ll tell you: not a bit of color in this one, folks.

    • Thank you very much, Hedy. This black-and-white project is really putting me through some changes. Very low depths and very high highs. The overall trend is up, however. I am becoming a much better photographer for it. I hope to be posting blogs regularly soon.
