I retired from the oil industry after X years (where X is a large number). Retirement means no more trips to exotic places . . . recognizing that oil is rarely in exotic places. But, retirement means more time to do all those things I always wanted to do but never seemed to have time to complete – delete the website (update was getting tedious); experiment with focus-stacking for a macro shot of a hibiscus flower; stir from bed early enough to capture the sunrise offshore Galveston and wander around Houston capturing that skyline and downtown. The images in this gallery all caught my eye or fired my imagination. However, what the camera actually captured was rarely what I imagined or anticipated. Today’s digital cameras are so capable that there is no point in “blaming the tools”. All weaknesses here are all the fault of the operator.

    Impressive - but at 6-3+ (decreasing to 6-2 as the disks in my spine shrink with age), I am jealous of those long walks. Now, I don't think I want to give up my lamb chops or fried liver and onions, but the yoga sounds interesting - as long as it doesn't requires too much flexibility.

    More importantly, how did you take the portrait? Your self-portrait techniques are stunning.

    An unusual image which just doesn't jibe except that it shows a beautiful model. It brings to mind images of equally beautiful models acting as tables for shashimi. Maybe it is me, but there seems to be no point and I feel it dehumanizes the model. But then, maybe others think it is art. To each their own and the model deserves a vote for what looks a very uncomfortable pose.

    Great shot - the long line of tankcars carries the eye into the image and the clutter on both sides of the track adds interest - and confirms that it doesn't matter where they are in the world, rail lines attract clutter and garbage.

    Fantastic shot - and amazing that there is no sign of any aircraft lights.

    Great shot . . . approved attire for a visit to the bank these days.

    Wonderful - veiled, but not retiring or submissive. There is an inner strength showing through. Smile

  • A wonderful portfolio that has all the places I remember from childhood! Smile But where is Inch Abbey? Has it escaped your eye?
