Tarmac ribbons criss-crossing the landscape, dusty back roads twisting between the cool shadows of ancient pines, and less traveled pathways connecting present to past, all I wander, seeking, seeing, with my keyboard and camera capturing scenes and stories to share with you.

Now in its sixth year, this venue has become an important part of my life, a place where I can express my thoughts and feelings about the things I see and do, hoping the process brings me a bit closer to friends and family who enjoy sharing my sometimes chaotic and often nonlinear observations and ideas. A journal, I suppose, but one with which I find pleasure in thinking others are alongside me on my journey.

MOUNTAIN WEDDING

... another all-time great wedding ... carrie and paul married and had their reception at the "moody mountain farm" in ossipee ... i arrived a few hours before the ceremony and began my day by shooting pictures around the well kept grounds ...

... after they were finished dressing i snapped a picture of carrie and her flower girl ...

... a flower girl, i will add, who could make a living at the position ...

... after the ceremony we did the formal group shots, then carrie and paul and i wandered the grounds investigating picture taking settings ...

... later in the evening i snapped a few casual poses ...



... there was dancing in the field ...

... and the party continued late into a most beautiful evening ...

... i still sometimes have a hard time believing people actually pay me to photograph their weddings ... i mean, how cool is that ...
