This site is a gateway to my photography, my travels, and other interests.
“Apertures and shutter speeds and composition guidelines are very specific and easily defined; vision, not so. It’s not a setting on your
camera; it’s a setting in your head.” – Ralph Berglund
“Shooting For Better Images” Sixty-two pages of solid suggestions and examples from 178 images of mine!
Derived from my 70+ years in photography.
MY PHOTO JOURNAL: 240+ posts from over ten years of photographs from my life, my travels, and my world with commentary. Indexed by subject. A blog by a different name.
BEACH AND SEAS IMAGES WITH DEBUSSY’S SIRENES AS BACKGROUND MUSIC – My most visited post.
MY 200TH POST – What is it we photographers do?
Favorites and Award Winners: These are some of the pictures that I consider my best work from the past twenty years. Some have been judged by others to be worthy and that is rewarding and humbling, but not all of my award winners are shown here. Similarly, many non-winners are included here, valued through my eyes. Includes a sampling.
My Photo Galleries: Several galleries organized according to subject matter. The galleries have collectively enjoyed over 700,000 views, and viewing continues at about 50 per day.
