    Last modified: 10 months ago

    1989 Family Gathering in Greenville Ohio - it was an adult only crowd as requested by Dad. However, if I recall correctly, Robbie came with me though isn't in any of these photos. Ray Gunn Jr came with Ruth and took all of the photos. The photos of Ray Gunn Jr were taken by Ruth. Dad was 84 years old at that time.

    Something about black and white which intrigues our view of photos. Maybe it is the contrasting shades of black which give us a better perspective. These photos were once in full color and then converted to a Black and White view.

    Much of my photography includes the world of horticulture. Although horticulture is beautiful in its own right, there are some species which take on a glow all to themselves and the result is, in my mind, from Amazing Grace.

  • Architecture

    Architecture

    Last modified: 18 minutes ago

    One of my hobbies with professional photography is documenting architectural styles in urban and rural settings. For instance, there is a barn in the Michigan gallery which was taken on a whim because we have a shabby, weakened, and falling apart century old barn with what looks like recent brand new sliding doors. Then a "For Sale" sign is posted. What's up with that? Life in the rural communities of south eastern Michigan won the hearts of judges in a photo competition which landed this photo in a New York Best Seller - Michigan edition in 2003.

    The barn is one of two (2) images that are included in the New York Times Best Seller- May 2003 and published in 2004 titled "America 24/7 Michigan Edition" ISBN # 0-7566-0062-6. Page 171 and Page 179. I submitted three (3) photos and two (2) of them were selected out of 1 million photos submitted from nearly 25,000 photographers nationwide [Note: Only 6,000 photos of the 1-million photos submitted were used in the 'America 24/7 Series'].

    It's not about one in a million. More like two in a million. I think, believe, the photos which were selected do represent Michigan and all other states in either a classical way or ironically depending on the perspective of the viewer. The book both in hardcover as well as softcover can be purchased from any bookstore as well as the on-line stores.

  • Butterflies [Lepidoptera] Album 1

    Butterflies [Lepidoptera] Album 1

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    Butterflies are insects in the macrolepidopteran clade Rhopalocera from the order Lepidoptera, which also includes moths. What we've done here is capture the essence of why we have these beautiful insects. Pollination. Great for crops, family gardens, and just beautiful to watch as they flutter to and thro. Butterflies are often polymorphic, and many species make use of camouflage, mimicry and aposematism to evade their predators. Some, like the monarch and the painted lady, migrate over long distances. Many butterflies are attacked by parasites or parasitoids, including wasps, protozoans, flies, and other invertebrates, or are preyed upon by other organisms. Some species are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; other species are agents of pollination of some plants. Larvae of a few butterflies (e.g., harvesters) eat harmful insects, and a few are predators of ants, while others live as mutualists in association with ants. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts. Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Butterfly

    The Album is sorted by year and then chronology either by the newest date for a photo or the oldest date first. Play with the controls to the left. The navigation structure is easy to understand and use which is why I picked this particular skin/theme to portray my photography.

  • Contrails or Chemtrails?  You be the judge.

    Contrails or Chemtrails? You be the judge.

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    Google "Chemtrails" and you'll see a wealth of information on how the United States of America Federal Government is dealing with a number of issues including vacinations. The difference between Chemtrails and Contrails is the length of time the trail remains and whether it spreads out across the sky from the sides.

    Chemtrails are real. Chemicals are being dispersed in the upper atmospher by the Armed Forces Air Force which are designed to fight global warming. The chemicals in a form similar to water vapor trails spread out with the chemical ingrediants designed to reflect heat from the sun back into space. Instead, the chemicals are alledged to be poisioning our food supply by stunting growth of food crops. It's also alledged the chemicals are poisioning our water supplies. Various experts have found high amounts of the chemicals in our soil as well as our natural water supplies. Municipal water systems are not designed nor have they been set to monitor for the excessive levels of the chemicals to determine if the toxicity is too dangerous for humans and animals to consume.

    There are other thoughts which indicate these efforts to combat global warming may have altered our weather patterns causing wild swings of warmth as well as cold along with large amounts of snow as well as rain. Only time will tell if these concerns are real or imagined.

    Water Vapor Condensation trails evaporate within seconds after leaving the edges of passenger jet engines as well as other jet propelled air craft. Chemtrails never evaporate. These photos demonstrate and validate the claims they truly are chemical based.

  • Economic Life Western North Carolina

    Economic Life Western North Carolina

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    What is it like to live in the area of Western North Carolina? At one time I had the album titled as Byways and Hiways. I've renamed it - Western North Carolina Economics. Because it is all about the area of Haywood and Buncombe Counties Economics. There are real differences between the "Haves" and "Have Nots". Not much industry exists in Western North Carolina especially in Haywood County. Both counties thrive on the tourist trade which has driven up the cost of real estate though has kept the bread and butter costs quite low.

    Haywood County was labeled, in 2017 and 2018, as the poorest county in North Carolina. As of the 2010 census, the population was 59,036. The 2019 population was 62,317. The county seat for Haywood is Waynesville with a population of 10,112 as of 2018. Waynesville is the largest city in Haywood County.

    Buncombe County is much better off economically because of tourism, medical facilities, and a regional airport. The population was 238,318 in 2019 census with a 2019 population of 261,191. Asheville is the county seat and has a population of 92,452 as of 2018. It is the Art Center for Western North Carolina.

    While Canton has a very large paper mill for its industry, it also has a vibrant downtown for its population. The citizens of Canton will always find a way to throw huge "parties" and parades and is known throughout the Carolinas for such public events. Canton is the second largest city in WNC.

  • Glade Mountain NC #1

    Glade Mountain NC #1

    Last modified: 3 months ago

    The Glades is a residential community on the north edge of Haywood County where it intersects with Buncombe County. From its base at about 2,500 feet elevation, it rises to a height of nearly 4,600 feet. The peak is right on the county line. Only one way in and one way out. Which makes for interesting challenges when the snow comes usually in late January to mid-February. The mountain overlooks vast portions of Haywood County as well as Buncombe County. Nearly 250 homes have been built on that mountain. All the roads are privately owned and maintained by the residents association and they have the roads graded twice a year. Each resident owner pays approximately $3,000 yearly for maintenance of the drainage ditches, mowing, clearing the roads of obstructions, grading, and anything else to keep the area looking its best. Most mountain roads are in deplorable condition though the roads in this development speaks to the upscale values of its residents. Most homes, when on the market, go for $500,000 or more. Some a bit less. Nevertheless, all properties are fairly good sizes including the homes built over the last 25-30 years.

    The views are some of the best for sunrises and sunsets. Many homes are located on the mountain ridge and the owners get to have 360 degree views. It's a beautiful area with magnificent views. For the homes which have primary views to the west, residents can see Sandymush Township in Buncombe County as well as the Cataloochee Ski Area in Haywood County. If the mountain was another 1,000 feet more in elevation, residents could possibly see Maggie Valley. Many hiking trails exist along the Canton Watershed area as well a few small streams are in existence.

  • Landscapes

    Landscapes

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    Landscapes is about everything you see in your visual field of vision. Some call it "capturing the entire landscape". The word "landscape" also describes how photos are presented with the long side of the photo at the top instead to the side (portrait view). Wikipedia defines landscapes as "A landscape is the visible features of an area of land, its landforms, and how they integrate with natural or man-made features. A landscape includes the physical elements of geophysically defined landforms such as (ice-capped) mountains, hills, water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds and the sea, living elements of land cover including indigenous vegetation, human elements including different forms of land use, buildings, and structures, and transitory elements such as lighting and weather conditions. Combining both their physical origins and the cultural overlay of human presence, often created over millennia, landscapes reflect a living synthesis of people and place that is vital to local and national identity.

    "The character of a landscape helps define the self-image of the people who inhabit it and a sense of place that differentiates one region from other regions. It is the dynamic backdrop to people's lives. Landscape can be as varied as farmland, a landscape park or wilderness. The Earth has a vast range of landscapes, including the icy landscapes of polar regions, mountainous landscapes, vast arid desert landscapes, islands, and coastal landscapes, densely forested or wooded landscapes including past boreal forests and tropical rainforests, and agricultural landscapes of temperate and tropical regions. The activity of modifying the visible features of an area of land is referred to as landscaping".

  • Macro

    Macro

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    The thing about Macro photography is that it is up close and personal with the object the photographer wants to capture. Most of the time the object is in focus and the background is out of focus thus the impression allows the object to pop. Some like to think it is a 3-dimensional kind of image on a 1-D or 2-D surface. On some monitors it comes across to the viewer in awesome visual.

    Marketing departments like to use Macro photography in their still photos because of the popping effect. It definitely will capture the viewers eyes and the WOW factor becomes apparent. I've been toying with the Macro process for nearly 30-years.

    Planes, Trains, and Automobiles tells the entire story. From early vintage to modern day convenience. Many photographers contributed to this Album during event photo shoots in the early part of the 21st Century organized by RMWJR Photography and its predecessors. Although, due to limitations with the theme, even though I show my copyright on many of the images taken by others, their copyrights remain intact which is why their names are in the photo file name. RMWJR Photography and its predecessors have written contracts with each of the photographers represented and should any images sell from within our affiliate lab partners, those photographers share in the profits. RMWJR Photography and its predecessors are acting as agents/publicists on behalf of the other photographers represented.

    Renderings is about a number of interactions with nature. From birds, Pets, Cloud Formations, Commercial Shoots, Fowl, Insects up close and personal, Rabbits in the wild, Mountain Clouds, Family Adventures, and a host of other intriguing subjects. Always there if we look and believe what we see should be shared, perhaps, even sold through commercial enterprises. If we don't record what we see today and save for future generations to know what we have, how else will history tell our story? Every photo has a story.

  • Seasons

    Seasons

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    Seasons are Autumn and Winter scenes.

    Autumn color begins during the last part of September and peaks about the third week of October. What causes the color changes in leaves as well as bark is a chemical reaction as the trees and shrubs begin to "drain" the chlorophyll from the leaves back into the root system. The Chlorophyll is what makes leaves green in most species. It is also what cleanses the air and absorbs carbon monoxide and turns that into oxygen which is what humans and animals breath for life.

    Autumn leaf color is a phenomenon that affects the normally green leaves of many deciduous trees and shrubs by which they take on, during a few weeks in the autumn season, various shades of red, yellow, purple, black, orange, pink, magenta, blue and brown.

    Winter Splendor. Brrrr it is cold outside when the temps begin to drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. When the temperature falls to around 32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degrees Celsius, that's when the wonders of winter begin. When it "rains", the water droplets crystalize in the cold atmosphere and turn into snow flakes. In certain situations, those flakes glisten and produce a beauty which lasts only a short time. I capture the beauty and that's what this Gallery is about.

    There's something magical about winter. Maybe because, like magic, it produces glorious scenes which soon disappear when the sun begins to warm the air. Much like a magic trick, one second you see it and then it's only a memory.

    Some areas of our world have no winters because they are too close to the Equator where it is warm all the time. For instance, Hawaii only has snow on the Big Island and then ONLY at the top of a few of the higher elevations of its mountains. A rarity yet it does happen depending how the Pacific winds react to the Jet Stream. Other places like the North and South Poles have winter year around as well as lots of snow and ice. Soon, however, due to global warming, the North and South poles will be only frigid water because the snow and ice are slowly melting. Maybe within in the next 100 years all that snow and ice will only be memories.
