    Since my wife passed away last year, my cat Precious has been a comfort and constant companion. She is truly "precious".

    FRED SELF PORTRAITS

    Last modified: one year ago

    Just for fun. Reaching the age of 75, I realized that I've mostly been behind the camera, seldom in front of it.

    Just some fun pictures of a few meals that I cooked after my wife of 41 years suddendly passed away. Friends were worried if I could survive without her.

    MY BICYCLE COLLECTION

    Since I no longer race bicycles, my greatest pleasure comes from finding and restoring them. While I prefer the Italian frames, it's fun to mix it up with bikes from other countries. The star of the collection and my personal favorite is, of course, the 1972 Cinelli SC.

    CONOCHILUS

    Last modified: 7 years ago

    This is my first attempt to add video to my Jalbum pages. In the video, you can see the movement of the cilia and the contraction of the animals when sensing a threat.

  • The Nikon S, Nikon Lke, and Other Microscopes

    The Nikon S, Nikon Lke, and Other Microscopes

    Last modified: 8 years ago

    These are a few microscopes from my collection. Some are early vintage brass scopes and some are newer vintage scopes that I use almost daily during the spring and summer. My favorites are the black Nikon S scopes that were first released in the 1960s and are still hallmarks of versatility and quality and have developed a faithfull following despite their age. The Nikon SBR was the first, the Nikon Ske and Nikon Skt, were research grade microscopes, and the Nikon Lke with constant Kohler illumination and changeable nosepiece was the top of the line in its day. Nikon designed these scopes with many interchangeable components so that a scope could be customized to every application. Although these microscopes were all metal and very rugged, the only design flaw with the Nikon S model microscopes was the use of plastic for the fine focus gear.

  • American Carriage Association Show

    American Carriage Association Show

    Last modified: 8 years ago

    Highlights from the American Carriage Association show at the Mullett Hall Equestrian Center on John's Island, South Carolina. Some of these carriages date back to the late 1890s and early 1900s and can be valued at well over $52,000 USD not including the horses. The carriages are beautiful and the owners were wonderful!

    Micro-life III

    Last modified: 8 years ago

    More tiny creatures of the family Cladocera taken through the microscope. These are found in fresh water ponds and lakes, usually amongst the submerged vegetation. The abundance of some species depends upon environmental conditions and water quality. The last few slides show my basic set up plus the other microscopes that I use from time to time. I've used several lighting techniques, darkfield being my favorite. Each microscope has slightly different optics or is set up for phase contrast, brightfield, darkfield, etc. The Wild is best for high magnification, but the Nikon produces better photographs.

    Just a rainy day project involving hand soap and old CD discs.

  • The Magic Gardens

    The Magic Gardens

    Last modified: 9 years ago

    My mom and my aunt Doris both love flowers. My aunt chose to landscape her whole yard while my mom chose to build a sanctuary. The flowers and creatures that inhabit both places provide photographic inspiration. My mom is 88 years old and still toils in her garden, propagating flowers, pruning, and moving pots around.

    SUNRISE

    Last modified: 9 years ago

    I'm an early morning person, so sunsets are rare, but I love to watch the sun rise over the horizon.

  • SWEAT BEE

    SWEAT BEE

    Last modified: 9 years ago

    My first attempt to photograph the beautiful metallic green sweat bee, particularly the agapostemon species. These are flighty subjects, almost always in constant motion, making it hard to focus, compose and shoot. Much harder than the equally beautiful cuckoo wasp.
