    Much of my photography includes the world of horticulture. Although horitculture 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 From Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, and Ohio

    Architecture From Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, and Ohio

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    One of my hobbies with professional photography is documenting architectural styles in urban and rural settings. For instance, the barn you see when you enter this album was taken on a whim because we have a shabby, weakened, and falling apart century old barn with brand new doors. Then a "For Sale" sign 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.

    Artistic Renderings

    Last modified: 29 days ago

    Artistic 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 intriquing 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.

    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.

  • Butterflies [Lepidoptera]

    Butterflies [Lepidoptera]

    Last modified: 5 days 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.

    Chemtrails vs Contrails? Do You Know the Difference?

    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.

    Horticulture is about plants, trees, bushes, weeds, herbs, and anything else which grows out of the ground. By definition "Horticulture is the science and art of growing plants (fruits, vegetables, flowers, and any other cultivar). It also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, soil management, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and arboriculture."

  • Lush Smoky Mountain Retreat on 3.34 Acres

    Lush Smoky Mountain Retreat on 3.34 Acres

    Last modified: 12 days ago

    A true retreat to escape the hustle and bustle of large metro areas. This retreat sits at the top of a mountain, covers 3 acres of prime rolling real estate in Buncombe County Western North Carolina. The grounds of the estate have been manicured and sculpted in a miniture method reminiscent of Bush Gardens in Florida by the retired curator of horticultrue (for nearly 40-years) for Bush Gardens.

    There are 5 tiers of garden areas lush with plants which bloom gorgeous fauna from early spring through the end of the year. Several walking trails begin at the entrance to the property eventually merging together almost to the farest end of the 3 1/2 acres shaped of land in a shape almost like a fat bananna. The property sits at the very top of the mountain and overlooks vast scenery for nearly 100 miles of 360 degree views as the photos within will depict.

    The former curator Busch Gardens added 1500 Ft Of Stone Walls & Benches & Pathways & 29 Types Of Maple Trees & Approx 30,000 Daylilies & 15 Types Of Hydrangeas & Over 300 Rhododendrons & Redbuds & Dogwoods & Weeping Cherries, plus many more varieties of plants from the wild like thousands of May Apple plants which appear every spring.

  • Macro Horticulture

    Macro Horticulture

    Last modified: one month ago

    Macro means only one thing. The camera lens is placed as close as possible, without bluring, to the subject or object being recorded. What this does is to capture completely in focus only the primary object. In this gallery it is flowers, different kinds of plants, as well as the tinyest flora on the ground. In some cases, the surrounding area of the object is blurred which is a function of the macro process. Thus, the object will seem to "pop" such as giving you the impression of a 3-D exposure on a 2-D surface. "Pop" is an advertising term which plays with your eyes and how your brain translates what it sees - thus the object of the focus tends to jump off the background. And, by the way, it prints this way as well. On certain types of materials such as metalized paper, the effect is startling.

  • Seasons - Autumn and Winter

    Seasons - Autumn and Winter

    Last modified: 2 months ago

    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.

    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.

    Click on the Info Button, upper left corner from any page. It's the white square with the letter "i" in the middle and check out more information about the seasons and how to navigate the Album.

  • Sun, Moon, Stars

    Sun, Moon, Stars

    Last modified: one month ago

    What is it about Sunsets, Sunrises, and Moon views which grab at the heart of anyone watching one take place?

    Sunsets and Sunrises behave differently depending on atmospheric conditions and whether water is present as in a body of water. A sunset and sunrise needs to be reflective otherwise it is simply a boring event. When water is present, the sun reflects off of its surface as well as reflecting off of the atmospheric conditions as it nears the visual horizon. These two reflective conditions create stunning visuals. When no water is present in your visual field, the only reflective source is the sky. Depending on what is in the sky will certainly define either a boring unimaginable view or a stunning visual when moisture in the air such as rainbow creation, or colorful rays of light bouncing around visually. The after glow of a sunset is never the same. Like a snow flake or a drop of rain water, those rays continue to flow forth because of our atmospheric conditions which change by the second. On a clear day, one is alledged to be able to see great distances. During a sun setting series of minutes, one sees everything there is of how beautiful our Earth projects in front of our eyes. Views of the moon can be full of imagination dependent on distance, clouds. and other atmospheric conditions.
