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 seventh 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.

... in rhode island, enjoying a little vacation visiting with mike and beth ... it's been too cold to much enjoy going out to take pictures, but returning from today's errand run we stopped in west warwick so i could do some portrait shots for cousin lucas ...

... these were taken with my new fujifilm x-e1 using a thirty-five year old olympus zuiko 50mm f/1.8 manual focus/manual aperture lens ... so cool, this little camera ... (lucas, too) ...
